During our forum on eReaders with the CyberPress one of the speakers, who is from RedFox, presented their very own version of an eBook Reader (eReader) which they said will be released locally.
Dubbed the RedFox WizLib, these thin and light eReaders come in three sizes — a 5″ display, a 6″ display and a 9.7″ display. They are also very thin and light — starting from 10.2mm going down to just 7.7mm.
Powered by the same technology as the Amazon Kindle, the RedFox WizLib will have options for WiFi and 3G connectivity so you can use the device to download content and also surf the net. It also supports a large number of file formats and can even play mp3s.
RedFox representatives could not give an exact price but they said the smallest model could be in the Php12k range and the bigger one is around Php15k.
They will be sending me review units once everything is ready so I’ll post more of these when I get them.
