Elonex outs e-book reader

UK-based Elonex International has partnered with the UK division of Borders to release its first 6-inch eBook Reader. Users can download ebooks via Borders' eBook Download Store. The reader is just over a third of an inch thick and weighs 6.5oz, with a battery life that is claimed to last 8,000 page turns. The e-Ink screen is said to be two and a half times sharper than a conventional display and can be red in direct sunlight. Users will have the ability to choose from one of eight font sizes and turn the reader horizontally for a wider viewing area.

Elonex has also built the Sudoku math game into its reader. Buyers get 100 preloaded classic eBooks on the device, and can also choose from Borders' library of 45,000 titles. The Elonex reader is compatible with Adobe Digital Editions software, which downloads and protects eBook purchases. DRM-protected reflowable PDF and ePub formats are supported, as are other popular eBook formats and images/pictures.

Borders UK is now offering the Elonex eBook reader bundled with 100 free eBooks, priced at the equivalent of about $311. An accessory pack for $48 includes a leather cover and a 4GB expansion card.
