Pandigital to launch new eReader with 7-inch color LCD

Pandigital announces new eReader

For a long time there were eReaders seemingly coming to market every day. Over the last month or so the eReader market has been quiet, I am sure that has a lot to do with the iPad. Apple is selling the iPad by the millions and can't keep up with demand and the thing works as an eReader and a lot more. Pandigital does have a new eReader that it is talking about called the Novel 7-inch color multimedia eReader.


The device has a glossy black bezel and weighs in at 11.8 ounces. The 7-inch screen has a matte finish (YAY!), supports touch input, and has a stylus that stashes in the side of the eReader. The reader and its color screen can be used to surf the web, read, view photos, check email, and watch movies. It also has a music player built-in.

The resolution of the screen is 800 x 600 and the reader can choose the font and create bookmarks as they please. An integrated dictionary lets you look up words you don't know and the reader has a virtual keyboard. The dimensions of the reader are 5.2" x 7.2" x 0.5" and it has 2GB of internal storage. The storage can be expanded with an SD card up to 32GB. The internal rechargeable battery lasts up to six hours and charges via an AC adapter. It runs Android for the OS and uses an ARM 11 CPU. The reader will ship next month for $199.99.
