Elonex and Border ship economic eReader in UK

Sorry for the lapse in posting, but I'll try and get back into the swing of things over Summer!

I want to post other material than just re-posts of eReader news on other blogs, but as those are also interesting for this audience I'll start with them, and then work on other subjects.

Over at Engadget they tell us about
As Engadget also note, this seems to be a fairly standard offering - with little to distinguish it in design or functionality from a bunch of other readers out there, and surely an OEM of the basic model.

Most notable is the price for UK buyers of £189 ($311) and the partnership with Borders for distribution and on-lien content sales.

More more (unsurprising) details you can read the Elonex Press Release, which also has a bunch of high-res image links if you want a "closer" look.

It seems the device has got beyond the stage of "self awareness" and kindly developed other human abilities, and is "Environmentally Considerate" which is nice of it!
