We heard it had a 3G version up its sleeve, and now Cool-er has made its new range official after signing a deal with AT&T in the States.

The Cool-er 3G is expected for release in the USA in mid-2010, and will allow users to download ebooks over-the-air similarly to Amazon's Kindle.

Specs are low on the ground as yet, we heard the next incarnation of the Cool-er was also going to be colourscreen, but there's no news on that either way as yet.

That said, it seems we can expect a few versions of Cool-er readers next year, as the company announced its plan to launch the "next generation of connected Cool-er ereaders, including Wifi and 3G models".

There was no mention of a UK launch for any of these, but we'd expect we'll see them at some point - the current Cool-er ereader is available all over the world and supports 9 languages, so the distribution channels are in place, it'll just be finding network partners to support the device's 3G capabilities.

We'll be keeping our ear to the ground for any more information on this, but let us know what you think below. Can the Cool-er compete with the almighty Kindle? Read our Cool-er and Kindle reviews to decide for yourself.
