QVC Offers the Cool-er eBook Reader as Their Day’s Special Value


cooler-ebook-reader-2QVC, the giant television retailer, is offering the Cool-er eBook reader as their “Today’s Special Value” for December 11.   The Cool-er has a 6″ (diagonal) e-Ink screen with three font styles and eight font sizes.  It has 1 GB of internal storage, and you can expand your storage with an SD card (not included).  Supported file types are:  PDF, HTML, TXT, RTF, FB2, EPUB, PRC, and JPG.  The Cool-er also has a built-in mp3 player.  The rechargeable battery charges with the included USB cable.  The Cool-er is preloaded with 29 books and includes 10 free downloads from the Cool-er book store (from a restricted list of books).  A computer is required to download and install books, but the Cool-er works with either PCs or Macs.  The Cool-er costs $229.32 and is available in eight colors.  It comes with a silicone case, earbuds, quick start quide, and instruction booklet.  It even has a Sudoku game installed.  I think it’s offical –  if QVC has one, eBook readers are truly now mainstream!  (This price is only good until midnight.)

    Grandma drops big coin on this only to see Johnny’s face drop when he realizes its not a Kindle or a Nook (which is lame, anyway – just use your phone).

    Merry Christmas!

    @Bob I’d be disappointed that it wasn’t a Sony reader. I thought it was amazing that QVC had any kind of ebook reader, though. It was only 2-3 years ago that QVC even had an iPod for sale! They latched on to the digital readers pretty quickly, relatively speaking.
