Jay-tech EB10 – 7″ LCD e-reader for 119€

Jay-tech, a consumer electronics company based in Germany, have announced a new ereader. The EB10 has a 7" LCD screen (800x480), 2GB Flash, but no Wifi or touchscreen. It' supports Adobe DE DRM, and it can read html, txt, pdb, fb2, Epub, and PDF. Battery life is supposed to be around 5 hours. It's going to be sold in the Schlecker drug store chain in Germany; retail is 119€.

You might want to get it as a lark, but I wouldn't recommend it as a serious ereader. They're selling it for slightly more than I paid for my SmartQ 7, and I bought that last year.

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. Can someone please tell me, am I alone in my opinion that 480px is too low a horizontal resolution? I often turn my 800×600 device sideways to get better horizontal definition even though it means having to manually scroll vertically.

    This looks like a dreadful piece of rubbish. How long until Joe Public gets turned off the whole idea of e-readers because the devices they see in their main street stores are either expensive or crap?

    BTW – “alrk”? Do you mean “lark”?
