Elonex 710EB eReader Ready for Pre-Order

The Elonex 710EB eBook reader with colour screen is now available for pre-order in the UK. The device has an LED backlit screen measuring 7 inches which is a change from the usual e-ink we see on most eBook Readers. The LCD screen does drain battery life though from the usual “days or weeks” that we see with e-Ink down to 8 hours on a single charge.

The 7 inch screen has an 800 x 480 resolution and is touchscreen. For connectivity it has wireless built in that can connect to 802.11b/g networks along with microUSB and a HDMI port.

The device it’s self measures 7.67 x 4.72 x 0.66 inches. It has 128MB of system memory along with a gigabyte of storage for books and media to be stored on. The memory can be increased by inserting a microSD card. The device runs the Google Android operating system.

The company states that the device “doesn’t replace a physical book but offers users an experience that a book cannot offer.” It will come pre-loaded with 100 titles to start users off as well as access to wireless download of a huge number of titles. As well as a color e-Reader, the 710EB can also be used to view photos, play music and enjoy video content. There’s a built-in speaker and a headphone jack to share the MP3 and audio book content with friends and family or enjoy in private.

When launched the eBook reader costs £119.99 and is available now for pre-order.
