Now known as the EB03, all specs are others unchanged, including the 6-inch display with a 600x800 resolution and 16 grey levels. In the UK, however, readers can now purchase e-books from WH Smith's online bookstore.

About 2GB of storage is onboard and comes supplemented by an SD card slot. Pricing in the UK is set at the equivalent of $379, and there are no announced plans to bring it to the US, though international releases are possible if not likely. The original, Wi-Fi free version was prices at the equivalent of $290 in its home market of Korea. [via Pocket-Lint]
