Pioneer Computers Launches A Colour Ebook

Don't let that picture fool you - this eBook reader is apparently a full-colour device. According to the specs it has a TFT colour screen with a 800 x 480 resolution. Oh, and it's just $149.

The W95 will measure in at 149mm x 104mm x 10.6mm, has a 5-inch screen and plays back a wide range of music and video file types. It's even got text to speech, and supports both landscape and portrait modes.

For $149, it seems like a pretty good deal, although you'll still have to source your own eBooks, which is one of the biggest problems with third party readers. Also, considering it's not actually an e-ink display, there's the whole eye-strain argument as well.
