Everywhere I turn these days it s either a new eBook reader or a tablet
to look at. I ve said it before and I will say it again that I
ll take a tablet over an eReader any day but that doesn t mean I don t
give these gadgets a chance.In a world undisputedly dominated by Amazon
s Kindle, other manufacturers are trying to come up with new, innovative
eBook readers that could steal clients from the Amazon giant. Such a
company is Jinke which has not one but two new eReaders, the 6-inch A6
