The e-book reader market has awakened thanks to the efforts of companies such as Amazon and Sony. Now more companies are entering the market to get a piece of the pie. Samsung is another one of those companies that is trying to find its way in this market. The company has introduced another reader in Samsung E60 that enables its users to take notes on the go and use their device as some sort of a basic tablet. The device won’t have a 3G service to rely on at this point, but it does provide support for WiFi.
Samsung E60 eReader comes with features that you can find in most e-readers on the market. The company is banking on the device’s lending capability, B&N’s content, and its tablet capabilities to differentiate itself from others in this market (you can see a demonstration of the device in the above video). But the price is going to be a killer for it at this point. E60 is clearly inferior to Nook and Kindle, yet it costs $299, which is higher than both devices. Considering that Kindle and Nook will get upgrades in the next few months and with the emergence of the iPad, it’s tough to see what Samsung is planning with E60.
