Wizpac to release 6-inch e-book reader soon

A recent MobileRead forum post reveals that a German company called Wizpac has released an e-book reader called the txtr at the Book Fair in Frankfurt. The device uses a 6-inch, 800x600 resolution e-ink screen with 16 grayscale colors. Users will be able to download content from a dedicated txtr store accessible through the device, though it's so far only to be available in Germany.

The device will store data on 648MB of built-in memory or an 8GB SD card that will be included, and users will be able to sign up for data plans for the device that should allow Internet browsing, with monthly subscriptions ranging from $18 to $22 per month, depending on the length of the contract. The txtr will weigh about two thirds of a pound. Other than the Wi-Fi connection, there is also a USB 2.0 port for charging the lithium ion battery.

The txtr is due to go on sale starting December 1st in the US and Europe, priced at the equivalent of $476, with the first deliveries expected to arrive by December 15th.
