First Triton-Based E-Reader To Be Available In February For ~$500

Yesterday saw E Ink revealing their new Triton color e-paper screens, and showing them off in a Hanvon-branded e-reader, about which little else was said. Today brings us pricing and dates for the as-yet-unnamed device. Hope you’re feeling spendy!

The device, which at 9.7 inches is larger than most e-readers out today and is of course color, will be selling in February for a mere 3500 yuan, which is equivalent to something between $500 and $550 depending on exchange rates. A 3G version would be offered for a few yuan more.

It was not reported whether the device would be available here in the states. I doubt it, but it will almost certainly be at CES, where we will get an eyes-on with the new color displays.
