of made-in-singapore e-book reader (keyreader)

Who needs the Kindle? Singapore's newfangled e-book reader 'mimics real paper': The KeyReader is the first ever made-in-Singapore electronic book reader. Available in March. It retails at S$499.00

Kenneth Chua, CEO of iCELL Network, proudly hoists up the new KeyReader.
It's the first ever made-in-Singapore electronic book reader and it was launched earlier this week. The KeyReader is the creation of local service provider iCell Network, one of the three providers of the national-wide free Wireless@SG broadband network, which might be a bit late to the game, considering that Amazon's Kindle has been around for over two years and Steve just made Apple groupies swoon with the new iPad launch...

...Like every other e-book reader, the KeyReader is a touchscreen tablet-format device with built-in wireless connectivity, measuring 19.6cm by 12.1cm and weighs in at 300g. iCell proclaims that it uses "technology that mimics real paper," which we can't verify for ourselves without a set in hand, but in all likelihood points to some page-flipping interface...The KeyReader will be available sometime in March at selected stores as well as through iCell Network, but if you're keen to get your grubby geek hands on it (as are we), it'll be making its rounds around Singapore on the Media Fiesta’s traveling exhibit, the Media Transformer. It'll retail for S$499.
