World’s strangest e-reader

This has to be one of the strangest ereaders I have ever seen. This is the first one I've seen with buttons along the long side of a 7" LCD screen, not short.

The Acho C301 is based on the standard 7" LCD screen. I don't know the rest of the hardware specs, but it has the usual broad video, ebook, and audio support. I'm still looking for the release date and price, but I wanted to show you this picture. Weird.

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."

  1. Not so strange for an eReader. Maybe for a tablet, but several Sony’s & the Aluratek Libre to name a few, have buttons along the long side.

    So you’ve never seen a Sony? What are you doing on this site then…
