I can’t seem to get the buttons to do anything, the search function seems to be broken, and the cartridges/chips containing the content (although they are not copy protected) are ridiculously large. I think this is going to have a tough time on the market.
But has it broken the $100 price point yet?
I would gladly pay $99.99 for this sweet tech.
I think you can get this through Proptronics.
Yeah, like most e-book readers, the screen is too small and the bezel is annoyingly large. But at least the resolution is good enough to read properly without eyestrain, which is more than can be said for most offerings to date. If they can make the screen a bit larger and get the gadget out at a reasonable price, I’ll definitely buy one.
Fail. It can’t even display an entire page.
And drop shadows; that’s so passÃ©.
Buyer beware: it works fine in broad daylight but if you’re in a dark room, forget about it. The screen is almost impossible to see, they should sell it with a medical plan to cover your eye strain costs.
Also, the screen resolution is decent but they only sell it with one font per book, and more bizarrely only one font SIZE, so if you have poor vision you’ll need external magnifier accessories.
You do know that ‘Pony’ is Cockney rhyming slang?
I wonder if Sorny or Magnetbox make these, too.
