CES report

Samsung unveils its first e-Book devices, with 6" and 10" screen size offerings, at the 2010 CES in Las Vegas. The Samsung E6 and E101 further solidify Samsung’s position in display technology by raising the bar on the quality of writing capabilities for e-Books. Unlike other eBook devices, the Samsung E6 and E101 enable handwriting directly onto the display, allowing users to annotate their reading selections, calendars and to-do lists with a built-in electromagnetic resonance stylus pen. This dedicated pen prevents mistypes caused by hands and other objects that may graze the screen’s surface. A variety of pen and eraser thicknesses makes the Samsung e-Books perfect for drawing and writing.

Samsung E6 and E1010 e-Book devices
"We’ve used our expertise to create a high-quality e-Book with today’s on-the-go consumer in mind," said Young Bae, director of display marketing, Samsung Information Technology Division. "Samsung is addressing a common frustration that users experience with many of today’s digital readers with a stylus that allows them to annotate their favorite works or take notes. Coupled with wireless functionality that enables sharing of content, this is a truly multi-faceted device."

Samsung eBook devices offer a 10" and 6" display
The Samsung e-Book displays reflect light naturally and deliver an appearance similar to that of printed paper, allowing people to read more naturally than they would with other backlit electronic paper devices. The Samsung E101 boasts a ten-inch screen, while the Samsung E6, is the more portable sibling at six inches. Because Samsung’s e-Book is not backlit, the power consumption is lower than that of other portable display devices. Only four hours of charging prepares the battery for up to two weeks of use, depending on the extent of daily use.

Samsung e-Book offers Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity
The Samsung e-Books are equipped for wireless connectivity as well. Wi-Fi 802.11b/g allows users to download content such as books and newspapers from a server wirelessly, as well as to share certain content with other devices. Bluetooth 2.0 is also a built in feature.

Samsung e-Book price & availability
The Samsung E6 and E101 will be priced at $399 and $699, respectively. The Samsung e-Books will be available in early 2010.
