Dec 23, 2008

Foxit Software is releasing a digital reader, eSlick, priced at $259. According to reports, Foxit plans to bundle WiFi into the next iteration of the eSlick. For now, users can add upload content from their PCs to the reader via included software. The eSlick weighs about 6.5 ounces, and is less than half-an-inch thick. It has a 6-inch, grayscale screen and comes in black, gray, or white. It has 128MB of internal memory, USB and SD card slots, and the company says the reader should last 8,000 "page turns" between battery recharges. It reads PDFs and text files, and plays MP3s.
