Sneak Peak into Dangdang ereader: A picture rumored to be the concept design of Chinese etailer Dangdang’s ereader showed up online lately. From what we saw (pictured left), the gadget appears to combine the goodies of Kindle and iPad with e-ink screen and sleek outfit. According to Yi Wenfei, VP of the Beijing-based company, the ereader would be made available in the first quarter of this year with a price tag of RMB 499(US$ 79). Would it gain on Dangdang paper book business? Let’s wait and see.

Shanda and Hangwang are two of the largest and most active competitors in the sector while Shanda’s Bambook (also priced at RMB 499) is quite popular among youngster.
