Skiff’s Innovative Big-Screen E-Reader to Debut at CES , are you looking for a large and thin ebook reader that will suite your electronic reading requirements ?
It has a 1600 x 1200 11.5-inch touchscreen (finger and stylus) that, as you can see from the above screenshot,I always wanted to have this e reader . It’s bigger than any Kindle or device from B&N. and I believe it is optimized for magazines and newspapers.
Connecting to the upcoming Skiff digital store via Wi-Fi and Sprint’s 3G network, I don’t know when it will reach Saudi Arabia and Philippines.
