ViewSonic ships 6-inch e-readers in Europe

ViewSonic on Friday introduced two new e-book readers for Europe, a first for the company. The two share the same 6-inch monochrome E Ink panels, though only the VEB 625 gets touchscreen capability. Both it and the VEB 620 have 2GB of built-in storage, an SD card slot and an accelerometer for rotating pages automatically.

The VEB 625 will be the only one to get a Wi-Fi connection as well. Battery life for the 625 is rated at 8,000 page turns and 6,200 for the 600. If users listen to MP3s while reading, however, this will decrease. Supported file formats include PDF, Epub, FB2, HTML, TXT and RTF.

The devices are now being sold in Europe, priced at the equivalent of $269 for the VEB 620 and $315 for the VEB 625. No word has been given on when or if they are due in North America. [via SlashGear]
