Spring Design Teams Up With Google To Bring More Books To eReader

The developer of the  Android powered Alex eReader, Spring Design, are teaming up with the Big G to bring the more than one million Google Books to the device.  Set to debut its Alex eReader this week at CES, the eReader features full Web browsing capabilities, Wi-Fi, as well as audio and video playbacks. Interestingly, the Alex eReader will also be able to run a number of Android apps. In addition, the device also has a 6″ Electronic Paper Display screen which will allow users to browse the Web in full color while simultaneously searching for and reading digital books.

Users will be able to click on hyperlinks within online books that lead to relevant information or multimedia content found online in order to enrich their reading experience.The digital books can be searched and downloaded using Google API applications provided by Alex’s eReader. This is certainly a win for customers and I look forward to getting mine when I can.
