Maverick EP7212 processor used in the REB1100
resolution is 320x480
Less is known about the REB1200, which is being billed as a larger, more feature-rich e-book reader with a backlit color display reportedly offering 12 times the screen resolution of a handheld computer. The REB1200 has an Ethernet connection in addition to the modem and 8 Mbytes of storage capacity that can be supplemented with Compact Flash memory cards.
a file in the firmware that sits on the processor in RCA's REB1200 reader prevents a hacker program or any other file
from being loaded onto the device
( i assume this is the same on the 1100, they are worried about people stealing books? laugh, or they have heard about the i-opener ;P )
