Behold! One of the only ereaders at the entirety of CES 2011. This is the BOOX M Series eReader, a little-known reader whose unique features (including a low-level Android) might very well give it a chance in a world engrained in the one-tablet law enforced by Kindle and NOOK. Check out its wobbly back, smooth and sassy border, and big fat beautiful indented buttons.

This BOOX M Series eReader is running some form of Android, we're guessing right around 1.6 (strange, yes?) The display is a super cool E-Ink Vizplex sizing in at a giant 9.7-inches. The E-Ink is working at a 8/16-level grayscale, which means it rocks. Inside you'll find an 800MHz processor, 4GB of Flash, and a 1600mAh rechargeable battery. There's USB 2.0, a microSD card slot which can be expanded to 32GB, a 3.5mm audio port, and no 3G - but integrated Wifi included. Sound good? Since it appears that most ereaders are made or broken based on their die-hard fans and lovers of big libraries of books - so we'll see.

  • That looks like a pretty sweet ereader. But actually I wouldn’t say its really an ereader but more of a tablet running android. Anyway if the BOOM’s screen is eInk than it would be suitable for reading. Looks pretty nice, lets see if it can stand up to the Kindle.
