Android-based e-reader

Spring Design launches Android-based e-reader

Spring Design has launched the first ever Android-based e-reader, dubbed Alex, which will also be the first e-reader to include two screens.

The first screen is a 6-inch panel for normal e-book reading (in monochrome EPD) and the second 3.5-inch screen will be a full color touch LCD for Internet browsing and supplemental content for the books.

Alex has Wi-Fi radio, and supports 3G Wireless for both EV-DO and GSM, although it has no carrier deals of yet.

"This is the start of a whole new experience of reading content on e-books, potentially igniting a whole new industry in multimedia e-book publishing for secondary authors to create supplementary content that is hyper linked to the text. We are bringing life to books with audio, video, and annotations," says CEO Priscilla Lu."This gives readers the ability to fully leverage the resources on the Web, and the tools available in search engines to augment the reading experience."

Among its other impressive specs, Alex has stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an SD card slot.

No word on price or release timetable yet.
