Harlin eReader V9 Is Like Oversized Sony Reader, Has Stylus for Notetaking

hindler.jpgThe Harlin eReader V9 may be Chinese-only for now, but this Linux-based electronic paper reader seems to beat both the Sony Reader P505 and the Amazon Kindle in screen real estate, with a 10-inch, 825 x 1,200 pixels display that can display 4 grayscale levels, and some features, like the stylus-based handwriting for note taking. We don't know how good this $US599 to $US699 eBook reader will really be, but the specs look quite good:
