Spring Design Alex eReader

From Engadget coverage at

Another eReader provider partners with Barnes & Noble on the content front, this time it's Spring Design with their "Alex" eReader which apparently "inspired" the B&N Nook design - the parallels are obvious.

I'm not sold on these combined LCD-interactive-panel and E-Ink-reading-panel designs, but Engadget seem to like it, claiming in their hands-on that it is very slim and responds quickly. 

Watching one screen scroll rapidly though content and the other one periodically refreshing and giving you a "snapshot" of where the page was scrolled when it could be refreshed just re-inforces my doubts....but if it works for you, then go for it.
