Have you been eagerly awaiting the arrival of txtr's $US13 ereader and rationalising its lack of fancy features with the fact that it will cost next to nothing? Too bad, suckers!
The German company has announced that its oddly named Beagle ereader will actually be retailing in the US for a hearty $US70. You're essentially paying for a basic Kindle without all that superfluous crap, like Wi-Fi and touchscreens and backlights and basic functionality. Enticing!
But, for now at least, it seems our dreams of forking over chump change in exchange for an ereader will have to remain dashed. Good prank, textr. Good prank. [Laptop Mag]
