Chinese social writing network Shanda Literature, a company owned by Shanda Interactive Entertainment Limited, has plans to release an eReader called the BamBook sometime in the next couple of weeks.
The eReader will come in two versions, both of which will be equipped with Wi-Fi and a 3G network. The eReader will let users access the Yuzhong digital library and the Shanda network.
As of May, Shanda Literature had 43 million registered users. CEO Zhou Hongli discusses Shanda in this video post.
Shanda has been expanding its digital media business over the past year. In February, the company bought Readnovel.com, a Chinese literature website, and in April, Shanda Games bought gaming firm Mochi Media.
