7.8-inch PocketBook InkPad Color eReader launched for $329

Color eReaders and color e-Ink smartphones have started to show up last year with products such as Onyx Boox Poke2 Color, PocketBook Color, or Hisense A7 CC with displays ranging from 6-inch to 6.7-inch in size.

If you like the idea of having a color eReader, but would prefer a (slightly) large display, PocketBook InkPad Color may be an interesting option with the eReader featuring a 7.8-inch Kaleido e-Ink display with 4096 colors.
