A German company called Txtr has announced plans to take on Amazon's Kindle range of eReader devices with a cut-price model of its own: the Txtr beagle, costing just €9.90.
The beagle's screen is 5mm thick, swelling to a rounded base that holds two AAA batteries. The front of the device is dominated by a 5in E-Ink display with an 800x600 resolution, along with buttons to control the page turning and the selected book.
The beagle comes with Bluetooth to pair with an Android smartphone. When a book is selected from the smartphone, it can be transferred across to the beagle's 4GB internal memory.
