The Insdream SX601

A new Kindle clone comes from China. The Indsream SX601 eBook Reader is very, very similar to the Kindle in appearance and design but features a few noticeable differences. The SX601 has a 6-inch display, like Kindle and nook, but rather than using e-Ink’s Vizplex panel they’ve opted for a 16-greyscale-level DSTN panel with faster refresh times and the same power efficiency as an e-ink panel.

There’s no wireless or interntal storage. SX601 reader has a SD card slot to hold their eBooks, and transfer them to the device via USB. The device plays MP3s stored on the SD card, and it has some other basic features – text-to-speech in English and Mandarin Chinese, a calendar, a calculator and a diary function that the software calls ‘Blogging’. Supported formats include TXT, HTML, PDF, EPUB, PDB, FB2, CHM, RTF,TCR, OEB and OpenReader.

No words on pricing or availability, the Insdream SX601 could be a low-cost competitor to the Kindle, Nook and Sony eReaders.

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.

Peking University Founder Group, a chinese company, showed a look-like Kindle reader at Digital Publishing Fair 2009, an exhibition taking place from July 9 to 12, 2009, at Tokyo Big Sight and will be on sale in Japan for $210 when Kindle price is $259.
The company said that the size of the screen is “unclear.” But I measured it and found that the size is probably 6 inches, which is the size of the E Ink’s e-paper used in the Kindle 2.
“Peking University Founder Group independently developed this terminal, and it has nothing to do with the Kindle,” Founder International said.
