EXCLUSIVE: Audiovox just killed the RCA Lexi

The ereader price war has claimed its next victim! I now have confirmation form my contact with Audiovox that the Lexi won't be sold in the US market.  There is no word yet on where it will be sold.

Per your inquiry regarding our RCA eReader, as a result of the recent price drops in the market (Kindle/Nook/Sony) our primary focus has shifted to international opportunities.

The RCA Lexi was Audiovox's hot new product at CES 2010. It was an impressive looking ereader with Wifi, an accelerometer, and support for the B&N ebookstore. Unfortunately, Audiovox had the exceptionally bad luck to get into a market right when the price war killed any chance of making a profit.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
