Astak announced a brand new ebook reader today called the Pocket PRO eBook Reader. It measures in at 5-inches and can be pre-ordered starting today.

This new reader supports over twenty different formats because it has Adobe Digital Editions firmware on it. DRM is supported as well and as are public domain books. Included on the device is 512MB of storage and a SDHC card can expand it up to 16GB.

A single battery charge lasts for 8,000 pages and you can even playback MP3s while reading. There's also text-to-speech, multiple font sizes and the E-Ink screen is easy on the eyes. You can get the 5-inch Pocket PRO eBook Reader by the end of the month for about $199.

Well, if rumors are to be believed, iRex is preparing to release a brand new e-reader that is much smaller in size than the Digital Reader 1000, which has a 8.1-inch display and would feature 3G.

The new reader would also have a touchscreen and would be used in conjunction with likely just one store for obtaining e-book purchases. The rumored name for this gadget is the Digital Reader 800 and it would be the first time an iRex device landed stateside.

Shipping is anticipated near the holiday season though pricing is not yet known. The participating carrier is not yet known, either, thought AT&T is definitely out as they've just signed up with Plastic Logic for their 2010 3G-based e-book reader.
