College bookseller Akademos issued a press release earlier this week announcing the launch of a digital reader “that will allow its member institutions to access electronic content from traditional publishers and from open resources, such as the Connexions Consortium, World Public Library, the Guttenberg Project, and many others.” The announcement says the device displays EPUB files, will allow students to make notes, and will apparently be linked to an online store where students can purchase print copies. Unfortunately, that’s about all it says—there’s no other info about the device, and no links to other info pages. (Even the link to Akademos’ website is broken.)
