Samsung's SNE-60: coming soon

It has memory sufficient of 1200 e-books, plus an SD card slot for more. It'll handle text, PDF and ePub files.

A built-in MP3 player allows users to listen to audio books, or to listen to music whilst reading. And the SNE-60 has a text-to-speech engine with "accurate pronunciations".

All good stuff, but there's still no word on what Samsung will charge for all this. ®
