Pandigital Novel eReader Line Expands with Company’s First ePaper Model

The new Novel eReader features a full touch-screen making life just that much easier with 600×800 resolution but it only has a 6” display, which to me is rather small for an eReader. I still don’t get the whole eReader trend, give me a good book, with real paper and I’ll be happy, some things just aren’t made better with tech…

In addition to being a first-rate eReader, the Pandigital Novel is a multifunction device, allowing users to browse the web, check email, view photos, or listen to music. The built-in Wi-Fi and web browser lets users easily go online to check out the latest news or their favorite website while the integrated email application allows customers to stay in touch with family, friends and colleagues. Customers can enjoy their favorite music via the built-in speaker or use the stereo-mini headphone jack for private enjoyment and also view photos on the 16-level grayscale display. The Pandigital Novel Personal eReader also has additional convenience features including a built-in appointment calendar and alarm clock.
