France's Orange tests e-reader for newspapers

The telecom hopes to compete with the likes of Amazon's Kindle in a different medium.

While the hype over e-readers has focused on Amazon's " Kindle " and other e-book devices --or lack thereof --some of the digerati in France are turning the page to a different print medium.

The "Read&Go," being developed by French telecom Orange, is aimed specifically at newspapers with hourly wireless updates by 3G and Wi-Fi connections, according to Electronista. The 1GB device, which will also come with 30 preloaded books, is already undergoing two-month public testing periods. We hope someone works on a dual-screen version so we can scan all the comics at once.
