We have officially started marketing our Good e-Reader 6.8 digital note taking device and Android driven e-reader on Indiegogo. This is the same platform where we raised over $330,000 for our 13.3 inch e-reader last year and it makes complete sense to have our entire product line on one platform.
Initially we launched the Good e-Reader 6.8 on Kickstarter and this is the first time we have used this platform to raise capital to place our order with our manufacturer partner. One of the big drawbacks with Kickstater is that they only provide a small window of time in which a campaign can be active and once you have met the goal, the campaign automatically shuts off. Indiegogo on the other hand allows us to use it as an e-commerce platform, where we can continue to sell it for as long as we want.
The Good e-Reader 6.8 is running the same robust software as our 13.3. You can use the stylus to draw or take notes and take comfort in knowing we employ palm rejection technology. The default e-reading app supports a myriad of formats, including EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC and a myriad of others. If you are heavily invested in another ecosystem, such as Kindle or Kobo, you can install those apps and import your collection on our e-reader.
The Good e-Reader 6.8 retails for $199 and we also have an accessory pack available for people who want an extra stylus, screen protector and wall charger.
