This is how I like to start a Monday morning, with a fresh new gadget. Today Spring Design has announced a dual screen eBook reader that is powered by Android. It’s called Alex. Why? I have no clue… It features a 6″ monochrome E-Ink EPD (electronic paper display) display and 3.5″ color LCD display. It also has an SD card slot for expanded storage. It’s the first Google Android-based e-book device to provide full Internet browsing over Wi-Fi or mobile networks such as 3G, EVDO/CDMA and GSM. Nothing is mentioned about supported formats, price or availability, but the first thing that popped in my mind when I saw this, was if this is the fabled Barnes and Noble reader that we’ll be seeing soon-ish. What do you guys think? Video after the jump.
