Being able to carry copies of digital books may have made things easier for many of us, but if you read something for hours on end, it won’t take long before you’ve developed a headache and eyestrain. We have different ways of coping. Some of us turn down the brightness level of our mobile devices, while others change the background and the text color. Smarter, more savvy Android users, will have a different approach to preventing eyestrain. Developed by webstunning apps, AutoReader 3D looks like a regular reader at first. When you launch it, you’ll see a very clean interface…

While not long ago, e-book readers were rudimentary devices far off from the capabilities of tablets, the thin line between a basic e-reader and a more complex slate becomes increasingly thinner and thinner and thinner. Amazon is the most important company “responsible” for mixing things up and the makers of the Kindle Fire are apparently planning to “confuse” us even more. Aside from preparing the release of a bunch of new tablets, set to take the Fire’s popularity to new heights, Amazon is reportedly prepping the launch of at least one color e-book reader as well. Unknown “industry sources” cited…

Pandigital recently added a new device–the Pandigital Supernova–to its Media Tablets family. Although its not the most incredible new tablet to hit the market, it’s listed with a sweet little price tag of only US$230. Don’t forget, though, that you get what you pay for, and this product is a great example of that theory. Pandigital has decided to load a modified version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread onto the tablet along with a mere 4 GB of internal storage. However, the device is being marketed as an “eReader” and therefore this product is right in that wheelhouse. In addition, it…

E-readers are becoming a huge market. This is mostly because of the booming e-book market. However, right now, Amazon’s Kindle is king of the hill. It’ll take a lot to dislodge them off that throne. Viewsonic seems to want to attempt it though. They’ve just announced the release of its 7-inch ViewBook 730, an Android tablet focused for the e-book crowd. To say that the ViewBook 730 isn’t anything revolutionary is an understatement. An e-reader doesn’t need much after all. However, it does try to enter the current niche of the Nook, which is that of a multi-purpose eReader/tablet. Revealed…
