Samsung's SNE-60K e-reader is now available in Korea for $375

Samsung's SNE-60K is now available in Korea in the Kyobo Bookstores. It costs 429,000 Won ($375). Interestingly, Samsung says that their older 5" SNE-50K reader was a failure - they only sold 3000 units. The major complaint was the absence of wireless connection. The new reader has Wi-Fi support, and also a larger 6" touch E Ink display, bluetooth, MP3 support and hand-writing recognition. Kyobo aims to sell around 15,000 e-readers by the end of 2010.
