Bookeen and Carrefour released the Nolim e-reader this month and it has a built in case that comes in five different colors. The device features a six inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1024 x 758 and has a front-light, so you can read in the dark. You have around 8GB of storage to store your digital content and you can connect up to a digital bookstore to buy French ebooks via WIFI.
One of the benefits of the Nolim e-reader is that the entire experience is really targeting French readers. It is being marketed in over 1,600 retail locations in France, but you can also buy e-books from the built in bookstore from any country in the world.
The Good e-Reader video review of the Nolim shows you the entire user interface and takes a look at the shopping experience. We take a look at sideloading e-books and how you can adjust the fonts, margins and line spacing. If you are the type of person who likes to read at night, we also conduct a reading test with the front-lit display.
