Pandigital Presents The Novel
Pandigital moves aside its photo frames and makes an entrance to the e-book reader market with a sleek color-screen device that makes for almost everybody's eye candy.
The digital frame-maker partners with Barnes & Noble in presenting its Android-powered digital book device, the Pandigital Novel. A 7-inch touch-screen contraption that has full-color display, it further enhances the experience with Wi-Fi connectivity and multimedia capabilities.
Glimpsing a preview of the Novel can link the memory to a rumored smaller version of an iPad. It sharply looks like one at face value. But at a closer look, what sets apart this e-book reader from the rest is its tie-up with Barnes & Noble’s e-book store.
Despite the irresistible color feature, the sharpness level of the device can lag behind 2010 smartphones. The touch screen is not nearly as responsive as the iPad’s, even not at par with those of the new smartphones’ touch-screen interfaces. But overlooking the downside, the Novel displays 800×600-pixel resolution, which is adequate for starters. It comes in white and black hardware for less than $200. That cost can get down to $169 at stores such as J.C. Penney and Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
