Pi, India´s 1st reading device

Vishal Mehta, a 34-year-old indian former employee of Amazon, is looking to revolutionise the way the printed word is read in India with Pi, an indianised Kindle clone.
“Our software is completely Indianised and will offer all local language content for users. Besides, at sub-Rs 10,000 (US$215) levels, it’s almost half the price of Kindle at Rs 18,000,” Mehta told.
The reader has no wireless connectivity, however. “It’s pointless in India, there is no 3G,” Mehta says. Pi has a micro USB port to connect to a PC, 512 MB of internal memory an a 4GB SD Card slot. Il also has the same 6″ E Ink® Vizplex screen than the Kindle and a battery life of 7 days.
