The latest e-reader news is that there’s a new e-reader coming our way and the best thing about the new e-reader to pamper us is its surprisingly low cost of just $129.95. Yes, that’s the price Paradigm Shift is likely to market their new e-reader EER-051D at.
But the price is not an indication of you having to make compromises on essential features. Rather you have a bountiful here as the new e-reader will have color display. Then there is an FM radio and photo viewer. The e-reader will also be capable of MP3 audio and MP4 video playback.
To let you read e-books, the device sports a 5-inch TFT color LCD screen and is compatible with a wide range of e-book formats which includes e-pub, PDF, DOC, and TXT along with FB2, PDB, HTML, ANSI formats as well. There is a generous 2GB of internal flash storage which can be expanded further with help of the attached SD card slot. Then its availability in a range of attractive colors like white, blue, pink, black silver or periwinkle makes the package all the more attractive.
Company sources have revealed that from May onwards, distributors will be able to pick up OEM models from them. Paradigm Shift has already named Delstar Wholesale Electronics as the distributor in U.S.
So there you have it. A color e-reader for you to have for about $130. This perhaps has brought us closer to an e-reader that is priced sub $100.
Keep watching for more on this along with the latest e-reader news.
