‘The Book‘ sounds like the name of some movie, right? No, this is actually the newly launched eReader with LCD display and some impressive tech specs. Here is what we know about the device for now – The Book has an LCD screen that is exactly not common-sight among ebook readers. Also, it comes in a Kindle-like casing and runs on a 400MHz ARM CPU. The device is based on the Linux 2.6.4 platform and includes other standard features like support for Wi-Fi b/g, 2GB Flash memory and SD slot content with cards up to 8GB in size.
Other features include a web browser, text-to-speech converter and a media player to run audio, video and image files. Formats supported on Augen’s The Book include TXT, PDF, HTML, CHM, RTF, FB2, EPUB, PRC and MOBI files.
The greatest thing about The Book is the affordability. It only costs $89 at your local KMart. Still making up your mind about the device? Take a look at the video review of the Augen The Book LCD eReader below.
