Ultra-light ebook reader runs Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| PDF software company Foxit is readying an electronic book reader that weighs
| 6.4 ounces, measures 0.4 inches thick, and runs Linux. The Foxit eSlick
| offers E Ink's low-power electronic-paper display, ships with an MP3 player,
| and sells for $100 less than an Amazon Kindle.

New eBook Reader Undercuts Kindle, Sony Reader Prices

,----[ Quote ]
| Available in black, gray, or white, the device will have 128MB of internal
| memory, plus USB and an SD Card slot (it'll come with a 2GB card, too).
| Because its screen draws very little power, battery life should be extremely
| long; Foxit says it'll go for 8,000 page turns between recharges; it
| recharges via either USB or an included AC adapter. It uses an embedded Linux
| operating system, too.
