Orange Read&Go reader

French telecom company Orange has announced a new e-book reader, entitled the Read&Go. While most such readers -- like the Kindle -- are meant to be universal devices, Orange's machine concentrates almost exclusively on newspapers, namely Le Monde, Le Parisien, Les Echos, L'Equipe and TÚlÚrama. These are updated hourly throughout the day, through the unusual offering of both 3G and Wi-Fi reception. By contrast the Kindle is only equipped with 3G, and strictly through Sprint's EVDO service.

Users will also initially get some 30 preloaded books, spanning multiple genres, stored on the reader's 1GB of internal memory. The first people to try Read&Go will actually be 150 testers, who will get access to the device for free during a two-month trial period. Orange is presently still searching for applicants.
