It is a compact device which can be easily tucked away in ones bag and taken anywhere with a WiFi connection. It comes with a 2GB internal memory and micro SD card slot, so memory is not an issue.
Binatone’s Readme Mobile
The next device is labeled as an eBook reader named Binatone’s Readme Mobile. Although using an Android operating system, it does not feature touch screen but a 7” 800 x 480 pixel display and a QWERTY keyboard below the screen. A directional pad on the right side enables navigating through books and menus. It also features WIFI connectivity enabling email, web browsing and media playback. Having a Google Android OS should enable it to handle its apps as well, but only those apps that do not ask for touch input and look decent on 800 x 480 screen resolution. Another issue with the Readme Mobile is it’s rather less than expected 6 hours reading time. A rival product Amazon Kindle with WIFI, priced around $140, not only gives an incredible battery life of 1 month with wireless off assuming one hour daily reading and 10 days with wireless on. While the Binatone’s Readme Mobile costs around $130.
