When tablets and smartphones both have got dual core options, how can e-readers be left behind? Panasonic is currently working on an e-reader that will feature a dual core processor and support Japanese e-commerce site Rakuten’s e-book store. There is no word on the launch date or even pricing as of now, but are expected to be announced soon.

- 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels
- Dual-core CPU
- Camera and microSDHC slot
- Android [version unknown right now]
- Weight: 400 g
