We’ve been seeing announcements on several e-book readers coming into the market lately. Either the Amazon Kindle has generated a lot of interest from consumers wanting something more, or consumers are really into reading e-books. Now here comes another e-book reader from a company called Astak – the Mentor. Astak is feeling generous as they decided to come up with not just one but three e-book models offering a choice of either a 5-inch, 6-inch or 9.7-inch display.
Astak says that the larger the size of the e-book reader, the more features it would have. True enough since the 9.7-inch would come with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as a 1200 x 825 pixel resolution. The other features of the 9.7-inch model are also carried by the other two smaller models. These features include a 128MB of RAM, SD card slot, read up to 8000 pages per battery charge, e-inked screen and support for MP3 playback.
The 5-inch and 6-inch models are set to hit the streets sometime in June for an estimated retail price of less than $200. The 9.7-inch would come later in October at an estimated retail price of around $350.
