Earlier, I blogged about Bookeen’s new e-reading device. Baen Bar has been in negotiations with various suppliers to create a DRM free e-reader. It has finally worked out a deal with Bookeen. This e-ink device will have the same size screen and same technology as the Sony, but it is DRM FREE!!!!!!! and reads RTF, HTML, PDF and PRC (not drm’ed ones). This means all those e-publishing books do not need to be converted to read on your e-reading device.
Even more impressive, is that the Baen Bar Ebook Reader will be $30 cheaper than the Sony Reader. It will be $320.00. I hope to have more details for you on Sunday. My Sony Reader will be up on E-Bay during the summer months. Anyone else want in?
