Samsung e-book reader

Samsung will launch an alternative to Amazon's Kindle 2 e-book reader as soon as June in Korea before coming to the UK and the US, the company said in a report on Tuesday. The device will be available in a number of colors and sport a stylus for navigating its content, which will be stored on the built-in 512MB of memory. Apart from displaying books, the device will also be capable of producing notes in a diary and memo taker, contain a world clock, calculator and contacts.

Details on the Papyrus' e-ink display are unknown, as is exactly when the Papyrus will come to the North American market. Pricing information is also a mystery, though expected to be set at $299, or $60 less than the Amazon device. Unlike the Kindle, however, there will be no data network access.
