Books presented on 5" e-ink display

Owen has introduced a new e-book reader, the E1, featuring rounded lines and a form factor that appears to be slightly smaller than the Kindle. The device integrates a 5-inch e-ink display which supports 20 lines of text and 30 characters per line. Along with e-books, users can also view pictures or play audio tracks in MP3, MWA, and OGG file formats.

A 2500mAh battery is claimed to support 25 days of standby time, although the specs for active run time are unclear. Content can be added using a USB cable, while an SD slot is provided for storage.

The E1 will be headed to the US and European markets, however a launch date and pricing remain unknown.
