Chinese company shows Kindle rip-off

A Chinese company called Peking University Founder is showing a new eBook reader, that looks just like Amazon's Kindle 2. They say they will release it by the end of 2009, in Japan, for around 210$ (the kindle 2, by the way, costs 299$).

It includes a cellular connection (they say it needs a SIM card) to download new books, and will use their own 'Apabi' ebook software. The screen is 'about' 6", not sure what kind of display yet.
