BeBook 2 spotted

The second-generation e-book reader from BeBook will officially be debuted at CeBIT in Germany later on today, the company has announced. Some key preliminary specs of the redesigned player include either Wi-Fi or 3G data network access for downloading new content as well as touchscreen navigation, which is still rare among readers

The new e-book reader also has ePub format support for both DRM and non-DRM files as well as a built-in RSS feed reader. Other features are expected to carry over from the original BeBook reader, including Mac and PC support for loading books along with PRD, word, TXT and HTML file support.

The BeBook 2 is expected to be made available this summer, though this is not official, and whether pricing will be much, if any, higher than the current player's $280 sticker is thus far unknown. [via MobileRead]

    I thought from the headline that it was a new netbook running the BeOS.
