$US260 Foxit eSlick eBook Reader Makes Its Way to Cheapskate Readers

The Foxit eSlick reader, manufactured by the same folks that build the Kindle for Amazon, has finally made its way to market. It looks pretty good, considering that it's probably the cheapest e-ink reader available.

Release was originally slate for January, but preorders are just finding their way to customers now. Furthermore, anyone who orders a reader now will probably have to wait a few more weeks to get their hands on one of these $US260 no-frills units.

As for features, the device is simple but practical: SD card support guarantees easy storage of eBooks and music (it's an MP3 players too), and Foxit, a company most famous for its lightweight PDF software, guarantees the device will read PDFs very well—a factor that help mitigate the reader's lack of a Whispernet-type service.
