Elonex eBook Reader

UK Company Elonex International has partnered with Borders UK to launch a 6 inch eBook Reader and usher in a new dawn of digital reading. The Elonex eBook is poised to set the eBook market alight and will take advantage of the new Borders eBook Download Store.

The Elonex eBook turns the next page in the history of reading. The Elonex eBook is a great new way to enjoy reading your favourite books and lets you carry up to 8000 eBooks*, pictures and files with you, wherever you go. At 9mm thick and only 180g it?s incredibly thin and light, and the long battery life means you can enjoy up to 8000 pages between charges- that?s equivalent to about 3 months reading for the average reader. [*with optional eBook Accessory Pack]

Regarding the emerging eBook market Sam Goult, Marketing Manager at Elonex comments ?While the eBook sector is still very much in its infancy, new products like the Elonex eBook give readers a whole host of new ways to enjoy reading their favourite books. At 180g the eBook is so thin and light is perfect for the daily commute or taking on holiday with you. With 8000 books weighing the same as an elephant ? how else are you going to fit 8000 books in your suitcase!?



Sam Goult continues about the benefits of eBooks over traditional printed books ?The Elonex eBook is not only easy to use but easy on the eye. It has the great functionality that you can change the font size, rotate the screen, read in direct sunlight and because the screen is two and half times sharper than a computer screen it?s great for people who struggle with their eyesight?

?The future of eBook is very exciting as the technology, which is already very advanced, becomes increasingly sophisticated. Elonex are keen to push the eBook sector forward and development is already progressing to bring further functionality to the product and to continue to improve the environmental benefits. Elonex sees the future of homes, schools and businesses involving eBooks as a way of distributing information, with the ultimate goal of a paperless society which will significantly decrease the nation?s carbon footprint.?

Adobe Digital Editions

The Elonex eBook is compatible with the free Adobe Digital Editions software, which is rapidly becoming the industry standard for downloading and protecting a customer’s eBook purchases. The Elonex eBook is one of the first to market with this technology and supports DRM protected reflowable PDF and ePub formats, as well as other less widespread eBook formats and images/pictures.

The Elonex eBook is the first Elonex product to carry the Green Tick Certification to demonstrate that it is both an eco-friendly product and that environmental issues have been taken into account at every step of the design stage.

The use of eBook Readers is low impact because unlike printed books, almost no natural resources are used in their production. The eBook is also RoHS certified to show that absolutely no hazardous materials are used in its manufacture. By reading eBooks you are helping to reduce the strain on the world’s rainforests.
