A few months ago we talked about Pandigital Novel, a device somewhere between a tablet and an eBook reader, which, according to some reviews, it seemed to offer good performance at an affordable price.
Pandigital today announced the release of Personal Novel eBook Reader, a product that seems to represent a change of course for the California-based production house, which chooses to exit the screen color display ePaper opting for a classic black and white 6-inch And this, along with the ability to access the online store of Barnes & Noble, makes Personal Novel eBook Reader, a competitor of the best known and Kindle Nook.
As for the main technical features, Personal Novel eBook Reader comes with a WiFi connection to surf the web and download books and newspapers, the formats supported are the main used for the eBook as PDF and EPUB. The internal memory is expandable up to 2GB to 32GB, thanks to the presence of a microSD slot for memory cards.
Personal Novel eBook Reader will soon be available at a price of about $ 200. The choice seems very apt, considering that the direct competitors, Kindle and Nook, can be purchased, respectively, at a price of 140 and $ 150.
In this regard, we note that Barnes & Noble has invited the press to an event to be held at the headquarters in New York Thursday, Oct. 26, it is highly likely that on that occasion will be a new version of Nook, perhaps in color.
