"Founder’s e-reader, called the weFound, looks very much like the Kindle
2 with a similar 6-inch and the same exact black and white e-ink screen.
Its major difference will be in its method for loading content onto the
device. The weFound uses a SIM card so books can be directly downloaded
to the device and it also has a cellular modem that doesn’t restrict
digital downloads to a single network. Finally the weFound is also built
to display what’s known as double-byte characters which are essential
for allowing Japanese, Chinese and Korean characters."
"It has been reported that the device will be priced at $200 and will be
made available in China and Japan by the end of the year. "
