Samsung SNE 60 eBook Reader Headed To The UK

Considering that Apple’s iPad is on its way to the UK, Samsung probably didn’t pick a very good time to ship its SNE-60 eBook reader to folks in the UK, but who are we to judge, right? While Apple’s iPad is not a dedicated eBook reader, it can still function as that, leaving the SNE-60 to be an alternative eBook reader for you if you’re shopping for one currently. Packing a 6-inch 600 x 800 greyscale e-ink display, it measures in at 171 x 120 x 16mm and weighs in at 315g. Wi-Fi is built-in, but sadly there isn’t any 3G. The built-in memory should be good enough to store a good 1,200 eBooks, and if that isn’t enough, there’s always your trusty SD memory card slot. Other features of the SNE-60 include support for ePub, PDF and TXT formats, a built-in dictionary, text-to-speech, and MP3 playback capabilities. There isn’t a firm date as to when this device will be on shelves, but it should be in the next few months. Pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet, but a price of £187 ($276) was mentioned during CES.
