Txtr, a German e-book maker, this week, unveiled their all new Txtr Beagle eReader. Being almost certainly the cheapest (if not the tiniest) E-Ink reader in the world; the new Txtr eReader is priced at around €10 (circa $13).
Featuring a 5 inch E-Ink (800 x 600p) screen, Beagle eReader measures just 5 mm thick and weighs just 128 grams. Other features also include 4GB storage, and four buttons: an on-off switch on the back, and forward, back and menu keys on the front. To save costs, the gadget has no connectors, and books are sent to it from a mobile phone app using Bluetooth.
Moreover, unlike other eReaders, there is no need for chargers or cables; as it runs on two AAA batteries. Users can read around 12 to 15 full books per battery change.
Unfortunately, there’s no WiFi or 3G connectivity under the hood; and users might want to grab the books to the Beagle by downloading them through a Txtr app (Android or, soon, iOS) and then transfer via Bluetooth, as I mentioned above.
Initially being launched in Europe, Txtr is also in talks with AT&T and Sprint to bring it in USA soon. For more info about the device, hit the play button on imaginative promotional video below.
