Samsung Wants to Join the Ebook Market, Too

Maximum PC Staff

With the introduction of the SNE-50K, Samsung has finally entered the Ebook market, hoping to compete with Amazon’s Kindle.

The SNE-50K (notably, the name isn’t as catchy as its competitors) will come with 512MB of onboard storage, a five-inch touch screen, a stylus, and no wireless or Internet capabilities. Though, while it can’t connect to you to the net, it is awfully slim, measuring only nine millimeters thick.

The reader is currently looking to launch in South Korean first, where it’ll partner with the Kyobo Bookstore, one of the largest booksellers in the region. No word yet on how much it, or its books, will cost but it’s expected to be on display in January at CES.
