Pandigitial Novel – the new digital eReader gadget from Pandigital launched earlier this month. The launch was not entirely smooth as several users reported issues with broken Wi-Fi, slow processors and a poor eReader application. The page turns were slow, users were unable to customize margins or edit font sizes.
The general reviews of the device was poor and that is was not primed for launch as yet. This made Pandigital recall all of their stocks. The company is said to be working on fixing the flaws in order to ensure that the issues do not recur again.
Now, according to a fresh report by The Digital Reader, the company is in no hurry to relaunch the device. According to an email communication from Pandigital, the company is still working to fix the issues. An email from the company spokesperson reads,
“We will have products back in stores in approximately a month. In going through the fix, we’re taking extra time to make sure it’s absolutely final before we send it out.
At this point, we have two products that have both been in development for the past few months. We will be selling them both to various retailers. The original plan was that the white model would ship first, but it looks like the black model may hit the market at the same time.”
Pandigital Novel is noted to be one of the most exciting new eReader gadgets in the market. The market has been significantly affected due to the launch of tablet PCs like the iPad. However, the eReaders are expected to be a hit among a niche audience of book readers. It will be interesting to see how Pandigital fares in the market once the Novel relaunches next month.
