Re: Foxit eSlick low Cost Ebook Reader

Product Description

E-ink screen – extremely clear and easy on the eyes
Utilizing the revolutionary electronic-paper display technology by E Ink Corporation, the eSlick provides a sharp, black-and-white screen that looks and reads just like it would on real paper. So now you can read text just as easily in bright sunlight as you would in your own living room. Also, the text in the screen is very crisp and easy to read. The eSlick screen does not have the angle-of-view issue like LCD screens do, so users can comfortably read as long as they like.

Thin and lightweight - easy to hold and carry
With the weight of 6.4 ounces (180g) and the thickness of 0.4 (9.2mm), eSlick is thinner and lighter than a typical paperback, and fits well in your hand.

Actually, you can take it anywhere with you - the park, the bus, the doctors office, even when traveling etc.

Ultra-low power consumption and long battery life
Based on the revolutionary E-ink technology, eSlick does not use any power to maintain a page display, only uses power only when an image is changed. Also, a single battery charge provides up to 8,000 pages of continuous reading. That is to say, you can read your books for an entire evening on a very low battery life indicator. eSlick can be fully recharged in only three to four hours.

By making full use of Foxits superior PDF generation and viewing technology, eSlick enables its users to view their favorite newspapers, magazines or novels in PDF format with just one click of a button.
