"Easyread TFT" - in other words, doesn't have a proper e-ink technology & won't be great to read.

Why the negative votes? The reviews at Play and Amazon, are in the main, very positive.

I don't know it plays videos and is £10 less than John lewis will be selling it for so hot from me.
7 hours ebook playback? That's pants. Can't beat real e-ink for ebook reading.

No better or worse battery life than all the other e-media readers as this is! Its the colour that gives it poor battery life compared to e-ink readers but then this is a different animal, try reading a glossy magazine or a comic on an e-ink reader and its pants, this is more what this sort if device is for. If you want a weeks worth of battery life but no backlight and only black and white then get an e-ink book, if you want full colour glossies and pics then this is a better device. Horses for courses really!

I think they should call them e-media readers as they not ebook readers as most people would call them these days they more a mini tablet designed for reading glossy colour books and watching the odd movie, slideshow such as this one which got 342 percent and is more expensive…002
