‘Enjoy’, Oppo’s first Android e-reader

Known primarily as a manufacturer of award-winning HD disc-players and PMPs, Oppo has apparently decided to penetrate the ever-so-popular ebook reader market with its recent announcement of its ‘Enjoy’ reader based on the Android OS.

It’s a 6-incher, but doesn’t seem to come with any technology to knock the Kindle variants or the Nook off their e-reader perches.  The main controls seem to be the trackball on the right-side edge of the device, and touch navigation keys are numbered on the left side.

Oppo has already announced its first Android smartphone last month, so it was no surprise that its ebook reader would also be based on the Android operating system, like the Barnes & Noble Nook.  Now if these readers actually started taking advantage of the Android platform, then we’d have something interesting to talk about.
