Foxconn to launch own e-book reader? Foxconn, the manufacturer behind the Amazon Kindle e-book reader, may be ready to launch its own independent e-book reader, says Taiwanese sources.
According to the DigiTimes report, Foxconn has hired a few new "software technicians with e-book programming experience."

The move would be unusual however, as it would put the company in direct competition with its own client Amazon. It could however simply "pitch the design to other companies that would brand it with their own names."

The e-book reader market is slowly getting more and crowded, with the recent announcements by Barnes $ Noble and Verizon saying they too will bring readers to the public.
