Samsung shows off e-book readers you can doodle on

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

CES 2010 Samsung briefly whipped out its alternatives to Amazon's Kindle and Sony's Reader: the E6 and E101 e-book readers, both of which not only offer wireless connectivity but can be used as notepads too.

Screen size separates the E6 from the E101: the former has a 6in E Ink panel, the latter a 10in one. Both also sport stereo speakers built into a slide-out panel that is also home to the device's navigation controls - well, beyond the two page-turn buttons on the front.

There's a slip-out electromagnetic resonance stylus too, which allows you to scribble notes and drawings - or rub them out, if you flip the pen round.

Wireless support extends to 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0.

Samsung said it will release the two e-book readers in the US in "early 2010", and we hear that they'll arrive in the UK in March. We can't say how much they'll cost when they do but, as a guide, US punters will pay $399 (£249) for the E6 and $699 (£437) for the E101. ®
