A German e-reader company has launched its device . Likely to be priced at a startling €10, the txtr beagle 5” e-reader is small and light, and runs on two AAA batteries.
Txtr is planning to tackle a growing problem: how to turn mobile phone users into book readers, a potential market, which could be huge.
At €10, the beagle may not feel like having to buy another device, and therefore might appeal to readers who want to read digitally, but don’t want to do so on their mobile phones.
Something else for us all in libraries to wrestle with?
