eREAD unveils ultra-thin eBook reader

eREAD STAReBOOK

The Chinese firm eREAD has today released the STAReBOOK. The digital reader is one of the world's thinnest eBook readers at only 8mm (0.3 inches) thick and is meant to achieve an iPod-like aesthetic in the normally pragmatic world of eBooks. As with Sony's already-shipping Portable Reader System, the eREAD device relies on electronic paper to display text using a minimum of power. Because the paper only consumes power when refreshing text, a single charge of the lithium-ion battery is useful for thousands of pages, the company says. Books and optional MP3 music files are stored on up to 1GB of internal flash memory that can be upgraded through an SD card slot. Pricing is unknown, though the company says that the STAReBOOK is now available internationally.
