teXet just set a new lower standard for e-readers
It’s built around a low resolution 4.3″ LCD screen (480×272). I have those number’s right; the screen is a generation out of date; you can’t find screens with that resolution anywhere but cheap portable DVD players these days.
But aside from the screen, it’s not bad. It comes with a touchscreen, 4GB Flash storage, a microSD card slot, as well as broad audio, video, and ebook format support. It also ships with a number of apps including a calendar, voice recorder, dictionaries, and a radio. It not clear that the teXet TB-431HD has a microphone or speakers, so the last 2 features will probably require a cable of some kind.
Retail is 2499 rubles (~$89 USD).
P.S. This post is a test of my new URL shortener. Let’s see if this works.
