Neonode zForce eReader platform turns up in Koobe Jin Young Reader

Last week I mentioned a new eBook platform from Neonode that promised to bring touchscreen eReader tech to market at a low price called zBook. The zBook tech has the Neonode zForce touchscreen technology at its core. The company has announced today that the zForce tech from its eBook platform has landed in a new reader.

The new eReader is called the Jin Young Reader and will be sold by Taiwanese firm Koobe. The device is reportedly set to launch in April for somewhere between NT$10,000 and NT$12,000. The price variance will depend on the content agreement chosen.

Little is known about the reader at this point other than it will have a 6-inch ePaper screen that incorporates the Neonode tech. The reader is claimed to be the slimmest multi-touch capable device ever and will have 2GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot with support for 16GB cards.
