BeBook Neo ebook reader

 

Is this the connected reader we've been waiting for?

Fast refresh on screen, Wi-Fi offers potential, SD card slot

As an ebook reader, the Neo is nice enough. It is a good size and the screen gives you the benefits of E-Ink without the reflections you'll find elsewhere. Page refreshing is fast and there are plenty of options, like being able to rotate the page and...

This e-ink-powered e-book reader has Wacom digitising and an impressive web browser.

You don't get much in the box besides the reader. There's a white USB cable for attaching the Neo to a PC for charging and transferring files to and from it. You don't, however, get a case of any description or a dedicated charger, so you'll have to...

Endless Ideas BeBook Neo review

 

The BeBook Neo is almost identical to the Endless Ideas BeBook Club S. Both eReaders have the same case and operating system, and both support a wide range of eBook formats. Where the Neo differs is that its screen uses a Wacom stylus, so you can...

The Neo's Wacom stylus support is too laggy to be useful and increases both its weight and price, making it poor value compared to its rivals

BeBook Neo review

 

Of particular interest are the BeBook Neo's two marquee features: a Wacom touchscreen and Wi-Fi support. Before we get to those. Let's look at some of the basics. The BeBook Neo has 512MB of built-in memory and offers support for the following formats:...

At £279 the BeBook Neo is one of the more expensive models on the market, and we’d probably shy towards a cheaper book reader considering we didn’t really find ourselves using the key features it offered. Although it’s a good device, we’d probably go...

If you're looking for an elegant, full-featured e-reader, the BeBook Neo offers a smart and stylish reading experience. Like many good things, though, it comes at a price.

Packed with features ; Stylish look ; WACOM touchscreen functionality ; Handsome accessories available

E Ink is not ideal for multimedia ; Aluminium back unpleasant to the touch ; Some features poorly executed

Electronic book readers are widespread enough these days that you can pick and choose between them on the basis of more than simply their ability to present text on screen. The BeBook Neo adds in a ...

Manufacturers of ereaders are falling over themselves to add eye-catching features that differentiate their products from the rest. The BeBook Neo is our current favourite. Its Web browsing capability is a superb extra and would be enough to sway us in...

Clad in white plastic with a rubberised rear, the BeBook Neo is a great looking e-reader device.

BeBook Neo

 

I went for the Onyx Boox version of the device (www.onyxboox.com) for AU$310 delivered to Australia. Doesn't come with a manual physical or electronic, but found one here:

Fairly intuitive, multiple formats, feels solid unlike cheaper products, touch screen a boon, unexpected screensavers

Centre button functions well but is not well placed for page turning
