Just a few things I have not posted on yet.
1Cross Tech eReader
This is a curious new ereader that was on display at CeBit. There is an e-ink screen on the left and a small LCD screen with a keyboard on the right side. The hinged design allows the two sides to be folded back-to-back for easier one-handed use. There is a video of the 1Cross on the video page.
enTourage eDGe unLoved at Engadget
Engadget has a review of the Entourage Edge by Joanna Stern that is pretty negative. It sounds as though the Edge will need a few firmware updates. That should sound pretty familiar by now. More worrisome is that Stern also found the processor to be underpowered and a bit sluggish at times.
PocketBook Reviews at Nate’s Ebook News
Nate the Great has several video reviews of the PocketBook 360 and the Pocketbook 302 that are well worth watching. The PocketBook 360 looks like a good and very portable ereader for those on the go. I like the detachable hard screen cover.
Irex DR800SG Covers
Since I cracked the screen of my Neo, I’ve been understandably somewhat overprotective of my Irex DR800SG ereader. Until I get a cover I’m leaving it at home where it is safely ensconced in a drawer when I’m not using it. I’ve resolved to practice safe ereading from now on – so should you!
The only cover available for the Irex DR800SG so far is a white leather thingie from Irex that just doesn’t do it for me. The sleeve that came with doesn’t cut it either as it does not provide enough screen protection.
Well, not to fear – new covers for the DR800SG from M-Edge will soon be here. Besides the Executive and Latitude model jackets, M-Edge will have three shoulder bag style cases for the new Irex ereader.
The Irex DR800SG is also available now at Amazonthrough a third-party seller which might at least save you some sales tax if you are looking to buy one.
