RCA REB1100 eBook review: RCA REB1100 eBook

 

RCA's black-and-white REB1100 strikes a reasonable balance between price, portability, and features. And in this era of MP3-playing cameras and multifunction printers, you have to admire the fact that this e-book is just for reading books. However,...

Backlit screen; nice design; long battery life.

Incompatible with some digital texts; mediocre text quality; can't share books with others.

Though portable, RCA's REB1100 eBook offers limited book selection and document format support.

RCA REB1100

 

The RCA REB1100 offers the basics in eReaders with a 5.5 inch display screen and just 8 MB of built in storage. The storage is, however, expandable up to 128 MB, but nowhere near its more modern counterparts of 512 MB built in storage

While many are looking for sleek, techie electronic readers with all the bells and whistles, eBook purists who would just like the basics for reading on the run may find the RCA REB has just what they need

Reading Books Is Fun And Convenient!!

 

REB 1200 is more superior than REB 1100 which was the first e book product. This one is better in that it is lacking an awkward format which resembled e mail rather than print on a page. 1200 has tabs, fonts which look nice, good paragraph...
