Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos didn't confirm a Samsung-built tablet today, but he's not saying no -- in fact, the tell-it-like-it-is founder of the massive e-tailer suggested quite the opposite in an interview with Consumer Reports. \"Stay tuned\" was the answer, and then Bezos told the publication that if

Haven't seen enough of KDDI's fall 2010 product line? Good. The company has just outed a new e-reader, and shockingly enough, it actually manages to differentiate itself quite well in the sea of me-too alternatives. The biblio Leaf SP02 (a followup to last year's model) is right around the size of

It's a funny thing, really. We wait years upon years for color e-ink to become a reality, and today -- of all days -- we finally hear that a sizable one is coming to market in just a few months. Reportedly, Taiwan's own Delta Electronics is hoping to ship a 13.1-inch color e-reader (along with an 8.

Our first reaction to this was to think just how wildly unnecessary \"e-skins\" are, but then we saw that slide up there and started to see the (electronic) light.

And so it begins. If you had any doubts whatsoever that the ereader battle was in full effect, let this introduction take all of that worry away.
