Smiths publishes Samsung Slide e-book reader

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

And its offering the device for £200 - down from £300.

If that seems pricey for an e-book reader, it's because the 6in Samsung reader - the E Ink display has a 600 x 800 resolution - has a slide-out control pad. It also has built-in 802.11b/g Wi-Fi.

It also comes with an electromagnetic resonance stylus to allow you to highlight passages, make marginalia, enter calendar appointments and scribble general notes. The E60 has handwriting recognition on board too.

For e-book storage, there's 2GB of internal memory, augmented by any SDHC cards you care to slot into the E60.

The global eBook formats ePub, PDF and TXT are all supported, and the built-in dictionaries can be used just by touching the screen with the stylus, WHSmith said.

The E60 is available from the WHSmith website now and will appear in shops on 26 August. ®
