The colorful Cool-er e-Reader offers huge library, available in USA and Europe

Cool-er E-Reader

If you are looking for a way to save trees by reading books on an e-reader but you don’t like the Sony Reader or can't use the Amazon Kindle you might want to check out the Cool-er e-reader.

The Cool-er (Yes, that the actual name of the e-reader. And no, it's not cool.) e-reader looks like one of those colorful ipods, although it's a bit bigger. The Cool-er e-reader will offer a larger library of books than the Amazon Kindle and will sell the digital books in the open EPub format.

In USA the Cool-er user will be able to choose from around 260,000 paid-for titles at launch from all the major publishers. In Europe we will initially only have around 60,000 titles to choose from.

The e-reader will be available in the USA and Europe early June this year and cost $249.

I think they are great and are going to save all that paper! Just think of the trees that are going to be saved! I think the need to be pat tested in the UK though if libraries are going to use them!

Cool-er is cheap in every sense of the word, but usable. It has the same 6-inch screen as the Kindle 2, but renders text with a proprietary computer-screen-esque font face instead of the more "print"-like Kindle 2 typeface. It is, of course, size-adjustable. You can also flip it 90 degrees to read in landscape mode.
