Is anyone exploring this device.

Not sure how to get one, since they're only being sold in the Korean
market, but it looks like an intriguing option.

Cheers,
Craig

the shots give an idea of readability in strong light.

Indeed it does say Taiwan.. Not sure why the headline was "Korea's
leading content provider". Good hunting in Taiwan. Seems we're on the
device of the month program at this stage.


Thanks,
Craig

We do a lot of business in Asia. Sadly, having absolutely misleading and
confusing information of all types related to products made there is part
of doing business. Wouldn't be surprised to find out they're actually
being sold in Thailand! Anyway, I sent an e-mail to my guys in Taiwan to
get the lowdown on these things. If they can find one, I'll take a look
at it when I'm there.

I saw the same video. Calling it the video tedious is being kind. At
about 13:00 you can get some idea of the reflectivity of the screen.

This device is also sold in China under the name Hanvon C18 and elsewhere in Asia as Bambook, KYOBO eReader, as well as Koobe Jin Yong reader. You can load Android apps in it but my question would be can you feed GPS into it?

Many of us in the mid-west U.S. just bought Dell Streak 5" Androids
($300 ebay). So far they look pretty good on Condor and outside at
home, but not flight tested yet. I tested my Droid-X 4.25" last year
for three flights and it was nice and easy to read. The Dell is
slightly better side-by-side at home, so we're pretty optimistic. Dell
also has 7" for you picture frame glass panel guys.

A short video sales pitch. I am very interested to see how this
develops.

Wise to wait a year and then build a panel around a 7" Android tablet
featuring the display.
