UK Company Elonex International has partnered with Borders UK to launch a 6 inch eBook Reader and usher in a new dawn of digital reading, creating an offering to rival the Waterstones/Sony reader tie-up.
At 9mm thick and only 180g, the Elonex reader is incredibly thin and light, and the long battery life means you can enjoy up to 8000 pages between charges.
Regarding the emerging eBook market Sam Goult, Marketing Manager at Elonex comments “While the eBook sector is still very much in its infancy, new products like the Elonex eBook give readers a whole host of new ways to enjoy reading their favourite books. At 180g the eBook is so thin and light is perfect for the daily commute or taking on holiday with you. With 8000 books weighing the same as an elephant – how else are you going to fit 8000 books in your suitcase!”
Sam Goult continues about the benefits of eBooks over traditional printed books “The Elonex eBook is not only easy to use but easy on the eye. It has the great functionality that you can change the font size, rotate the screen, read in direct sunlight and because the screen is two and half times sharper than a computer screen it’s great for people who struggle with their eyesight”
“The future of eBook is very exciting as the technology, which is already very advanced, becomes increasingly sophisticated. Elonex are keen to push the eBook sector forward and development is already progressing to bring further functionality to the product and to continue to improve the environmental benefits. Elonex sees the future of homes, schools and businesses involving eBooks as a way of distributing information, with the ultimate goal of a paperless society which will significantly decrease the nation’s carbon footprint.”
