Alex eReader with 6" EPD Screen Now Has Access to Google Books
      #35567 - 01/05/10 04:00 PM

Spring Design today announced they have entered into an agreement with Google that gives Alex users access to more than one million Google Books online or downloaded using Alex's integrated Android Web browser and search applications.

Alex is the first and only open Google Android-based eReader platform with full featured Internet browsing, WiFi connectivity, audio and video playback and image viewing in popular formats, and the ability to run a growing number of Google Android applications.

With the Alex touch screen browser, users can access the Internet to search and read eBooks directly on Alex's eReader's 6" EPD (Electronic Paper Display) screen while browsing in full color on the Internet simultaneously. Users can click on hyperlinks within online books that lead to relevant web-based information or multimedia content found online to enrich their reading experience. EPUB digital books can be searched and downloaded using Google API applications provided by Alex's eReader.

"We are pleased to work with Spring Design and the Alex, which is an exciting new reading device, that combined with a wealth of free public domain books from Google, provides great value to eReaders," said Google Product Manager, Brandon Badger. "Our relationship with Spring Design is helping to expand the number of ways people access eBooks and search for information online, whether for business, education or entertainment."
