[CES 2011] Aluratek must have taken a page out of Apple’s book by releasing the Libre Air ebook reader with such a suffix to its name – hopefully it will also be as slim in the process! The Libre Air boasts Wi-Fi connectivity so that you can download your favorite digital tomes as long as there is a Wi-Fi network somewhere around, sporting an exclusive reflective light LCD display as well that delivers faster page turns without the problems of e-ink screens (flashing and flickering). Since there isn’t any backlight, you will find that reading on the Libre Air is similar to that of a book, so your eyes won’t strain that easily. This also helps with the battery life, and paves the way for a third-party accessory for those who love reading in the dark – a clip-on light of sorts. Boasting a more curved design, the Libre Air will also come with user-friendly buttons and controls for maximum convenience, alongside support for PDF, TXT, FB2, EPUB, MOBI, PRC and RTF electronic book formats. It ought to hit the market this February for $129, heating up the ebook reader market in the process.
