12/11/2009, Guess Packard Bell doesn’t want to be left behind in the e-reader game with word that the company will be rolling out a brand new color capable e-reader sometime in September 2010. Apart from hardware, the company will also offer the other important component – content, which includes movies, music and e-books among others specially for netbooks.
