Now if only it could have been a good one, too.
The UK discount chain Asda have just started selling a £52 ereader. The View Quest Mediabox is based 5″ LCD screen and lacks Wifi or a touchscreen. But it does have 2GB Flash, a SD card slot, a speaker, as well as an impressive list of format support:
- eBooks: ePub, PDF, FB2, TXT, DOC, PDB, HTML, WTXT
- Music: MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, WAV, OGG, APE
- Video: WMV, RM, AVI, RMVB, 3GP, FLV, MP4, DAT, VOB, MPG
I recognize the hardware. This ereader has shown up in the US and Australia (as well as other countries). In the US it was sold by Delstar, and it was a pretty bad ereader.
But on the upside, it’s using a Rockchip CPU so it might have decent video abilities.
