The Txtr Beagle eReader is coming and the price point may well make people sit up and pay attention. Will be interesting to see where this idea goes.
From goodereader- "The Beagle is a five inch device with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. It uses the same e-Ink Visplex technology found in the new Kobo Mini. There is also a very solid amount of internal memory to store your EPUB and PDF books with 4 GB. It is one of the lightest e-readers on the market, weighing in at 128 grams. One of the ways the company is able to offer it at such a basement bargain prices is to have it rely on 2 AAA batteries, instead of an internal rechargeable one. Since the device draws minimal power, you should get a solid year out of it!
The new Beagle does not have Wireless Internet access or a touchscreen, but brings something very unique to the table. Txtr has integrated Bluetooth technology into the device to sync all of your books via your phone or tablet. The company is also revising its iOS and Android apps to automatically send purchases right to your Beagle."
