BeBook - Club

 

It isn't easy being a maker of e-book readers these days. Amazon has really cornered the market with its Kindle. That's not so much down to the Kindle e-reader itself, as about additional services such as ...

Intrinsically, the BeBook Club does a reasonable job as a mid-range, no-frills e-reader. But that is not what we'd expect to get at this price. The Wi-Fi toting Kindle costs £111, and the version with 3G built in costs £152. That, right there, is the...

BeBook Club

 

The BeBook Club offers features that lower-priced readers do not, but for AU$249 it would have been nice to see at least a dictionary or Wi-Fi thrown in, too.

Range of stylish cases available (sold separately) ; Go-to page feature ; Options to change idle settings ; SD card slot ; Wide range of ebook formats supported ; Audio support ; Good PDF handling ; Less expensive than other BeBook devices ; Sturdy...

(Comparatively) dark screen with outdated E Ink technology ; Noticeable ghosting ; Circuitous and fiddly navigation ; No dictionary ; No online options ; A tad pricey ; Relatively small internal memory ; Sleep mode drains battery

The BeBook Club is available in Australia from BeBook.

Consumer review (cnet.com.au)

"In no way compares to the Kindle"

 

Its far more expensive than the kindle, offers less functionality (lacking WiFi! Let alone 3g.. dark screen, poorer ergonomics, chunkier, no dictionary).. There just doesn't seem to be anything that makes this a worthwhile purchase.

Wide format support

Literally everything else

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

light, fast page turns, clear screen, decent battery life

 

thankfully there are still some "open" readers available, for people like me, who like to own their purchased books, instead of being locked in by somebody like amazon of kobo.

Fast bootup (so you can turn it off to save battery power) fast page turns, clear screen with enough zoom options to find the correct setting, very happy

Nice form, there is a metal look back which looks nice, but i would have been ok without it.. doesn't improve the reading exeperience..
