Pandigital pulled from shelves for firmware fix

Pandigital on Thursday explained a halt to sales of its Novel touchscreen e-reader. The company says the device will go back on sale in about a month, and the time will be used to review the firmware that's preloaded onto the device, which was the reason for the delay. A spokesperson for the company also confirmed that a a black model will also be released that may have other features.

When the black model launches initially, it may be joined by the re-released white model at the same time, potentially with its software issues fully resolved.

The Novel sports a 7-inch, 800x600 capacitive touchscreen LCD and supports HTML, PDF and ePub (including standard protected files) for text. It can transfer content to and from both Macs and Windows PCs over USB. Only Wi-Fi is available for Internet access, but the Novel has built-in access to Barnes & Noble's online bookstore and supports its LendMe borrowing feature. There is 1GB of onboard storage and SDHC memory card support. Before leaving shelves, it was priced at $200. [via SlashGear]
