We all remember the horrors of Pandigital’s first release, with the Pandigital Novel. This unit was plagued with firmware and software bugs that resulted in a recall of the units. Several months later, the color touch screen version is now viable as the bugs have been ironed out. Will we see a repeat with the Pandigital Novel Personal e-Reader?
First of all, the new Pandigital Novel features Sipex e-ink touch screen, instead of a LCD based display. The screen size boasts 6 inches and has a display resolution of 800 x 600.
This new eReader has 2GB of internal memory for customers to store hundreds of books and periodicals, music, photos, and more. Plus, it has a built-in memory card reader that accepts up to 32GB memory cards for access to a virtually unlimited number of files.
If you are looking at this from a media prospective, it has stereo speakers and a headphone jack. So you will able to listen to audio books and mp3’s. It also has a virtual touch screen keyboard.
Like the other models in the Pandigital Novel eReader line, the new eReader comes integrated with the Barnes & Noble eBookstore, so customers can easily download and enjoy books, magazines, and periodicals. The e-reader itself will also be able to read PDF and ePub formats.
The new Pandigital Personal e-Reader will debut this month for $199.99 and comes with integrated WIFI.
