Copia offers more than just a $99 e-reader

Forget about the super cheap e-reader that was announced by Copia earlier today – the company has more than just that up their sleeves. In fact, Copia has lined up a couple more LCD tablets alongside a same number of E-ink readers that will somewhat resemble the Amazon Kindle. It still remains to be seen whether the Copia App as well as service will be able to compete with the Kindle App and other similar service providers since consumers prefer to have as less fragmentation as possible in their experience. How Copia intends to carve a niche for itself in the tablet and e-reader market remains to be seen, but they had better come up with something concrete if they are going to remotely succeed. For the moment, we will take a closer look at the upcoming devices in the extended post.
