SigmaTek Computer to reveal 5-inch and 7-inch eReaders at IFA

SigmaTek 7-inch eReader EBKT-101

France’s SigmaTek Computer will be launching a pair of eBook readers at IFA next month. The 5-inch and 7-inch eReaders both have TFT displays with a resolution of 800×480. Inside is a RockChip2808 CPU running 600MHz, nothing sensational and could pose a problem since this eReader is not meant for just eReading. Support for “multimedia” features include AVI, XviD, and MKV video, with MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, WAV, and OGG music. How this will handle HD movies remains to be seen, 720p would be expected as it only has 128MB of SDROM.

We’ve been informed that the OS will be “Rockchip OS”, however the specs of this eBook match those of others equipped with Android so that could be a possibility. There is no App store nor support for third party apps yet, so a jailbreak to Android seems possible. Software will be an iTunes like utility for managing your music, photos, videos and books purchased from an “internet website.” That’s great, it means it will be open for you to grab EPUB, PDF and TXT files from anywhere you choose.

They will be in stores this October, for 119 euros and 99 euros for the 7-inch and 5-inch models respectively.
