Viewsonic e-readers

ViewSonic’s about to offer the Kindle some competition with two new e-readers.  The VEB620 and VEB625 are 6-inch, 800×600 resolution e-ink devices with 2GB internal storage. They’re both compatible with PDF, RTF, ePub, and plain text formats — that PDF support is a big selling point, since the Kindle requires you to convert all your PDF files into their format before viewing. Other features include SD card support, orientation sensors, and WiFi on the VEB625 model.

The Viewsonic VEB620 and VEB625 are currently available in Europe for around $269 and $315, respectively.
