Merlin eBook Available on Long Haul Stopover
Another week goes bye and yet another eBook reader arrives.
The Merlin EBOOK Reader is launched by Dubai Based UAE company Merlin Digital. The device is 0.4" thick, 6.4 ounces, has 512MB of internal memory and comes with a 2 GB SD card (supports up to 4 GB). The eInk resolution is 600 x 800 and it also has a built-in MP3 player.The Merlin eBook is preloaded with the usual 100 free classics and is compatible with the Adobe Digital Editions software and ACS4 DRM.
The Merlin eBook is available from leading Electronic Superstores and of course the Dubai Duty Free shops but will it make any difference or just like so many eInk ‘lookie likeies’ sit on many shelves? At $407 it is likely to be the later even with the duty free discount!
We are thinking of starting a competition to spot which one has been repackaged and branded.
