Netbook/Notebook Manufacturer Toshiba To Enter E-Reader Market

With more news about e-reader devices than ever, you’d think it has become the new netbook.

Yet another netbook and notebook manufacturer – Toshiba – has decided to enter the e-reader market. The company currently has plans to produce and sell its own e-reader device in mid 2010.

Two models are currently being evaluated, a 7-inch model that has already been approved for production and a 9-inch model that is still being considered. Toshiba considers touchscreen capabilities to be unnecessary so the new e-readers would not be touchscreens. No other details have been released about these e-readers.

With the Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, and ASUS Eee Reader, to name a few, the competition for the e-reader market segment is getting tougher and tougher. We’ll keep you posted on any developments.
