A Real Contender
Ok… why aren’t we hearing more about this little gem?
The Foxit eSlick Reader is calling itself: “this generation’s way of reading textbooks, favorite novels, magazines and pretty much any…etc.”
Â With an introductory price of $229.99 (MSRP) $259.99 they might be right.
Like I said, whyÂ haven’t we heard more about this? While it’s still a good hop, skip and stagger away from my $100 line in the sand, it is a giant leap ahead of the competing eBook readers that are pushing and passing the $400 mark. And it’s doing everything the other guys are doing.
It isÂ 0.4″ thick, 6.4 ounces, and is said to fit theÂ hand like a palm desktop. With a 128MB internal memory and coming equipped with a 2 GB SD card (supporting up to 4 GB) this thing is ready to rock your eLibrary.
eSlick uses the electronic paper we’re coming to know and love, and boasts industry leading low-power consumption.
Check hereÂ for the Foxit eSlick Reader overview.
For the business person, lawyer or writer, eSlick also claims to give theÂ best PDF reflow capability on the market. Dig this, it doesn’t just read these formats: TXT, PPT, DOC, XLS, and HTML, it will convert them to PDF files for printing. WOW!
If that isn’t enough, it arrives equipped withÂ built-in MP3 player,Â free Foxit Reader Pro Pack, Foxit PDF Creator and earphones.
