yeah but the puzzling thing about this article is that there is no mention of the feature that makes this tablet optimized for reading...is it some kind of screen tech or am i missing something here?

yup but the definining factor in any reading tablet will not be the size though its an advantage but the deciding factor will be the screen...like kindle or nook or the paper displays that are set to launch later this year by SHARP.

if they added a microSD slot on it, then it exceeded Google's Nexus 7

Price this at a $99 (US) price point and this can easily become the best selling tablet in the world in its class.
