The Amazon Kindle may be sitting pretty as the best-known ebook reader out there right now, but all that could change if some of the new breed of e-ink devices have their way.  Computex 2009 has seen a few new designs introduced, often packing various wireless technologies and/or touchscreens.  IAC stacks up the wireless, with WiMAX, EVDO and WiFi, while Netronix has been showing multiple sizes from 6-inches through to 9.7-inches.
