Samsung intros two e-readers with Google provided content

By on
Two more e-book readers have been cast into the swelling sea of portable gadgetry with the introduction of Samsung's E6 and E101. While details are scant, the two devices sport 6 and 10-inch gliding touchscreens, a soft QWERTY keyboard, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0 -- but no 3G.

Sliding the touchscreens up reveals a few controls, like Home, Menu, Back and navigation buttons, as well as speakers. The device also supports handwriting, allowing users to annotate their reading selections, calendars and to-do lists with an EMR stylus. Samsung claims a four-hour charge will supply enough juice for up to two weeks.

The E6 and E101 are expected to ship at some point in early 2010 with prices of $399 and $699 -- a bit steep, if you ask me.
