Lenovo doesn't deny rumor of own e-book reader
Lenovo is reportedly working on an e-book reader of its own, according to a Monday report from Chinese news site Netease. The device is apparently undergoing internal testing and will be released very soon. Lenovo itself isn't denying the rumors of the device, and seems keen to join the lucrative e-reader market, which was largely pioneered by Amazon and its Kindle e-reader.
Lenovo is one of numerous Chinese manufacturers keen on building its own e-reader, with Hanwang the first China-based maker to launch e-readers in its home country. It sold nearly half a million readers in 2009.
Despite the indication of Lenovo launching an e-book reader, no specs, release date or price information is yet known. [via ClonedInChina]
