Motorola E-EMI eReader Unveiled in China; Runs on Android 2.1

November 5, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola has unveiled a new e-reader, the Motorola E-EMI, at a low key event in China. Motorola’s latest eReader device is the fruit of a partnership with the China Putian Eastern Communications Company.

With a cool white colored body, this new eReader is equipped with a 6” E-ink display at 16 gray level- something too small for an eReader. The device is powered by the Android 2.1 operating system. Sources claim that the device is handy with just 9.5mm thickness and weighing just 260g.

It supports audio, music, games and recording functions, and is also WiFi enabled. The microSD card slot allows memory expansion as per user needs. The E-EMI reader is capable of surviving up to 15 days without recharging the battery.

The device supports electromagnetic pen touch operation with the stylus coming attached with the device. The stylus, as usual, can be inserted into the groove on the side of the reader.

Moreover, it features an audio output jack, a microSD card slot and a micro USB port at the bottom of the device. Apart from a row of navigation keys and a home key just below the display, the E-EMI reader has two buttons on the side, presumably to adjust the levels.

Presently it comes with an AC adapter which can be connected to the USB chord supplied along with the device. It can be charged from a PC also. The eReader, which is expected to cost more than 3000 Yuan, will be soon be available in the Chinese market, but no clue about its arrival in other markets.
