Amazon, maker of the successful reading device, the Kindle, is rumored to be soon to introduce a larger version of the wireless device. The larger size is said to be aimed at readers of newspapers, magazines and, potentially, textbooks.
Speaking from experience as a Kindle (version one) owner, the reading of books on the device is quite slick. However, reading magazines and newspapers pales in comparison given the size and color issue--a six inch, black-and-white screen.
The Kindle II was just introduced in February so no specific word is forthcoming from Amazon on when this larger device may debut.
