It is contest time again at Good e-Reader and we are giving away the latest e-reader issued by Bebook, the Club S! Entry is free and anyone can win! This was our review unit we received from the company and we are giving it away to one lucky reader in the next week.
The Bebook Club S features a six inch e-ink pearl display with a resolution of 600×800. and 16 levels of grayscale. There is no touchscreen in this model and navigation is relegated to the D-Pad and manual page turn buttons. There are also physical buttons to access the settings menu which are different depending on what application or book you are reading. The device is very quick due to the 800 MHZ Marvel CPU Processor. Most e-readers these days launch with 400 to 500 MHZ and suffer greatly when you are trying to open books or navigate around the interface. I found the Club S is one of the quickest e-readers to have been reviewed this year.
It has 2 GB of internal storage and if that is not enough you can expand it up to 32 GB. Your main Library Shelf can be customized within programs like Calibre, Adobe Digital Editions or via Windows Explorer. Visually you browse your books via directories and around 20 books ship with the unit when you first get it. I like the ability to customize your own directories because it will help you organize everything into collections. You have the freedom to make any author folder or genre based one. PDF, FB2, CHM, HTML and EPUB files are the main books supported.
To enter the contest just reply to this post, make sure when you comment you email address is in your Disqus profile or leave your email address so we can get in touch with you if you win. We will be picking one lucky winner at random on December 1st 2011. Good luck!
