First, there was the Amazon Kindle. Then Barnes & Noble presented the Nook. Now (in February, actually), Spring Design will give us Alex.
Alex looks really cool and has features that no other eBook reader has:
- Web Browsing
- Color Touchscreen
- Video Viewing
- Music Listening While You Read
- Fastest EPD Image Refresh Rate
So far, all the eBook reader manufacturers have had missteps. I’m sure Alex will have some as well. But it looks like a step up from any other readers on the market. I like the inclusion of video and audio, which will certainly pave the way for true multimedia eBooks. I’m looking forward to the day when you can use eBook readers for a lot more than that. It looks like the age of digitized information in the palm of your hands is getting here. How will we deal with it?
