Photos of BeBook 2's SIM Slot

These blurry images are screensnaps from an HD video I had to rip and downconvert in order to view. The original video, via MobileRead, is in Dutch. However, there is a sentence in English clearly stating the BeBook 2 not only has a 3G SIM slot but WiFi too. Alas, no actual demonstration of wireless book discovery or downloading is shown.

The video is worthwhile because it also shows the forthcoming BeBook Mini, an eInk device with a five-inch screen. With a purported retail price of only $200, this could put pressure both on Sony as well as the five-inch-screened ECTACO jetBook.
