CES 2008: Chasing Amazon.com's Kindle?

Posted by Brier Dudley

LAS VEGAS -- Some mocked the angular design touches and big side buttons of Amazon.com's electronic book, but not the Chinese electronics manufacturer Sungale.

Known around the Seattle area for its $29 DVD players sold at Bartell Drugs, Sungale displayed a prototype "E-Book" at the show with some Kindleish design cues. It hasn't entered production yet, but the company said it will accept SD memory cards and support English and Chinese.

It doesn't have wireless at this point but Sungale's a big producer of Wi-Fi digital photo frames that work with Google's Picasa photo service, so who knows what's in store for its E-Book?
