It’s not surprising that Huawei Technologies, the largest networking and telecommunications equipment supplier in China, has entered the e-reader market. With CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezosis, expecting e-book sales to surpass paperback sometime in the next 9 to 12 months, releasing the T62W seems to be the right move to make.
Little is yet known about the Huawei T62W ereader, including screen resolution and what type of e-book formats it will support. The operating system also remains a mystery although it’s rumored to be the Android OS. What we do know is that it comes with a 6-inch white-on-gray screen that is sensitive to the touch. This is a nice deviation from the space-hogging Kindle keyboard and no-touch. Other expected features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G connectivity, microSDHC and SIM card slots.
