New small and cheap e-book reader by Endless Ideas
It seems Endless Ideas, Dutch manufacturer of the E Ink based BeBook electronic book readers, has announced a sub-200 euro e-book reader. “Who will break the 200 euro barrier?” the company mused philosophically on Twitter last week. Bright believes (Dutch) that Endless Ideas may have been thinking about itself.
Another Tweet revealed a picture–shown here—of the old along side the new, which suggests the diagonal for the new device may be 5 inch. That’s approximately four times the size of the Palm Pilot I use for reading e-books, which may still be small enough to be carried around in a coat pocket or so.
