Samsung's Latest E-Readers Accept On-Screen Doodles, Link With Google Books

Samsung E6 Reader

John Mahoney

Samsung also rolled out an interesting pair of E-readers today--the E6 and E101 readers feature e-ink screens that refresh fast enough to accommodate on-screen writing with a stylus--a first for the category.

Using an electromagnetic resonance stylus, one can write, draw and annotate while reading.

To fill them with words, Samsung has partnered with Google Books, which can deliver works from its massive archive via a Wi-Fi connection.

The E6 and E101 have six- and ten-inch screens and cost $400 and $700 respectively, available in "early 2010".
