Spring Design Alex eReader

 

The Spring Alex is the best e-reader on the market for Android geeks, but mainstream e-book buffs should stick with the Amazon Kindle or the Apple iPad.

Flexible, dual-screen design. Integrated touch-screen Android device provides Web browsing and video-viewing capability. Plenty of book downloading options.

Expensive. Sluggish CPU. Hissy audio output. Interface can seem obtuse for non-techies.

Review: Spring Design Alex E-Book Reader

 

Two screens: one for reading one for surfing, neither competent. Meet the Alexa.

Easy to use. Packed with browser, e-mail and access to photos. Crisp screen easy on the eyes. Long battery life

No integrated book store: WTF? No 3G. Inadequate graphics and processing power. Expensive

Alex Android tablet / e-book reader

 

The Alex is much more than an e-book reader; it's also a pad-style computer courtesy of the Android OS

Good battery life, innovative design

Quite expensive, lack of support for Android Marketplace

The Alex doesn't have the polish or broad functionality of the iPad, and the user interface is also much less intuitive. On the other hand the Alex is smaller, lighter and has way better battery life. If the Alex were to come down somewhat in price,...
