The e-book market is hotter than ever. Amazon may have really started it, but since then Sony, Spring Design and a whole host of others havejoined the party. Endless Ideas has also been a player for awhile now,but it has just recently started to gain traction. The BeBook One andBeBook Mini didn't have the feature set of some of the more modernreaders, but the BeBook Neo looks to change that.

The Neo is the "world's first Wi-Fi e-reader with access to eBookstores worldwide," using E Ink screen technology, a powerful CPU and abattery that allows for up to 7000 page turns. It's also said to be2.5x faster when it comes to browsing and reading, and it also hasWACOM technology that allows for annotations and text mark-up. It willsupport popular file formats such as ePUB and PDF, and it's availablefor pre-order now for a February shipment.

Hmmm... I don't think I'd want to be competing against Amazon, Sony, and soon Apple. I give them +1 for guts.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

And it's priced at $299. They would have had a much better shot if this was being released two years.

I second what everyone is saying and what is with the E-ink displays. I remember when E-ink was talking a little bit ago about the had color. However; I as of yet see no color except for media kits from there competitor's. This sounds kinda like the Nvidia stuff to me. If you beleive it I have a Gold cugerand in my back pocket you can see it for 1000 bucks, in cash!
