Readius Ebook Phone Hybrid

readius1One of the features that I liked most of Amazon Kindle was the anytime connectivity to Amazon Kindle Store, where I can buy books from my own reader. Well, here is a new and interesting concept made by the Dutch company Polymer Vision that is set to launch mid 2008, according to news posted at wired.com

The Readius is essentially a cellphone with a roll out 5" e-ink display. According to Reuters, it "will go head-to-head with Apple's iPhone and Amazon's Kindle". The Readius certainly has a stupid enough name to compete with the Kindle, but an iPhone rival? Apple managed to get a full scale computing experience into a box with one button. The Readius has eight buttons, and you'll need to do all the setup on a computer: email, audio books, RSS feeds and podcasts. None of this is configurable on the go.
