New Look at the Kyobo eReader

Qualcomm’s long awaited Mirasol screen is now on the market, but it’s a little hard to get. It’s only available in South Korea, and it appears to be difficult to find even there.

In fact, there aren’t any reviews of the new eReader online yet, even though it was launched several weeks ago. While I would like to share something more substantial, all I have is this video. But at least this video gives you some sign of its abilities.

This eReader is equipped with a 5.7″ Mirasol screen, and it can buy eBooks and educational  videos from Kyobo, one of South Korea’s largest bookstore chains. As you can see in the video, the software doesn’t live up to the hype surrounding the screen. It’s rather slow to open an ebook.
