Bebook One eReader

 

Endless Ideas, a Netherlands-based office electronics manufacturer, introduced the BeBook at the end of 2008, not as a new e-reader but a variant of the Chinese Hanlin V3. It has the same 6-inch built, portability, and matte finish, but the BeBook 1...

When it comes to formats, the Bebook 1 Electronic Book Reader has most of them covered; it currently supports 24 formats, more than any other ereader. In-book, you can bookmark a page for future reference, zoom in or out a page, change the font type,...

As the BeBook 1 is just a re-branded of the Chinese Hanlin e-reader, you can't expect much advanced features and high-end specs from a first-generation device that came out in 2007 . 4 grayscale level and 600 x 800 pixel display make the page display...

BeBook eBook reader

 

While the US went Kindle crazy and Europe is relatively awash with eBook readers you still have to hunt fairly hard for them in Australia. That has led BeBook to fill the near void Down Under with this model

For now, though, this $499 BeBook offers an excellent size and performance to provide an enthralling introduction to eBook life. So let’s see how the utility of eBooks, and the BeBook reader in particular, compares with the original article.
