It seems the theme of the CEATEC in Japan this week is ebook readers, with interesting readers appearing from Panasonic and Fujitsu. The Panasonic Word Gear is a nicely designed ebook reader with a 5.6" touch-screen, making it a good size for portability. The Word Gear screen runs at 1024 x 600 which should provide nice clear text for producing a good reading experience.
Fujitsu was demonstrating a concept ebook reader based on the E-ink technology that weighed only 177 grams (just over 6 ounces).
On a down note the Sony Portable Reader that many have been waiting for has been delayed once again until the middle of November.
