Intel Reader is not your typical $1500 e-reader (video)

You've probably never heard of this ereader before, and if you have then the price tag might have convinced you it was a boondoggle.  That was certainly my opinion.But about a week ago I stumbled across Intel's waiting list for loaner units. This opportunity is only open to educator, so I wouldn't even try to get on it otherwise. Fortunately the sign up page included links to a couple demo videos on Youtube.

This is some pretty impressive hardware. There's a camera on the lower edge, and the Intel Reader can use it to do OCR as a background operation (while you're doing other things). It also does TTS. Now that the K2 is out this isn't quite so amazing, but I'm still impressed by the design. A lot of thought went into this device.

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."
