Samsung exits e-paper business, keeps e-books

Samsung to bring out LCD e-book reader in 2011

Samsung will no longer produce e-book readers or displays as it is too costly, according to a recent report from Korea. The largest Asian manufacturer of cell phones and memory chips will, however, remain in the e-book reader market with a device that uses an LCD panel instead. This product will be released sometime next year, a company spokesperson said.

At CES this year, Samsung introduced the E6 e-book reader with a 6-inch e-paper display and Wi-Fi. It was rumored to cost $400, however, which is likely why the device never shipped. Competitors now have devices that cost half as much, while Apple's iPad is only slightly more expensive than Samsung's suspected target price.
