We can't say they look a whole heck of a lot different than the EB-300 and EB-100, but Netronix's EB-600 and EB-500 are still a push in the right direction.

Over at Computex, said firm was showcasing its Prodigy e-reader, which just so happens to pack every major wireless radio we can think of. EV-DO Rev. A? Check. WCDMA / HS...
