The latest addition to the plethora of e-readers that is seeing the light of day is the Samsung SNE-60. With most marketing predictions pointing towards a great year for e-readers in 2010, no consumer electronics company worth its salt is willing to be left out of the race. So what we have is one more e-reader joining a segment that is getting increasingly crowded. Potential customers can avail of the sleek new e-reader through the Kyobo Book Center.
Similar to the E6 model developed by Samsung Electronics earlier, the SNE-60 electronic book reading device is all set to be launched and will be available for sale worldwide sometime in 2010. This e-book reader comes with a 6-inch e-Ink display, touch capabilities and handwriting recognition support. The SNA-60 has a sliding design, which hides a range of extra controls for ease of use. Despite the absence of a QWERTY keypad, the Samsung device has on-screen interface which enables the users to start reading books and also initiate other basic applications, like writing notes with the tap of a finger.

Apart from its basic function of providing a good book reading experience to its reader, the SNA-60 has the capability of entertaining you by playing MP3 files while you read, and is also equipped with a built in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. A number of various common file types can be recognized and accessed through this Samsung e-reader apart from the files in ePUB and PDF formats.
