One of the very unlikely combos out there is that of a cellphone with an e-reader. This is the case of the Beijing Gorld 600 TW e-reader, pictured below and also packing the features of a mobile phone. This is an E-Ink device, with a 6 inch display and a battery life of around 6,000 page turns.

As far as connectivity is concerned, you get GSM/GPRS/EDGE, plus WiFi and Bluetooth and the e-book reader is even capable of sending SMS messages. The device is available in China for about $420 and we guess that the next step in hybrids and combos like these would be a picture frame that’s also a printer or scanner.
