Back at CES we first heard that Samsung would be bringing a new eReader to market called the E6. The announcement was no surprise given how popular readers like the Nook and Kindle were over the holiday season. What we didn’t hr form Samsung back at CES was when we would see the readers on the market.

Samsung has now announced that the E6 is officially launching in the US. The device lets the user read digital books and supports handwriting directly on the screen. WiFi is integrated into the device and the book is able to access the Barnes & Noble digital bookstore.

The E6 has a 6-inch e-ink display with a resolution of 600x800 and offers eight shades of gray. Supported file formats include e-pub, PDF/a, TXT, bmp and jpg formats. Samsung crams 2GB of RAM inside and the device has a microSD card slot supporting up to 16GB more storage. Samsung is still mum on pricing, but the thing better be cheaper than the Kindle and Nook considering it's nowhere near as cool as those two devices.
