JWF eReader Pro
The eReaderPRO is an entry level user friendly eReader with simple graphical user interface with soft rubber touch finishing and numbered button for quick and easy selection of pages and options; it comes with a SD card slot to allow user to upload books from their PC via a SD card or you can simply add to the internal memory; the included USB cable can also be used to transfer files to the eReaderPRO. The manufacturers main aim was to make it as simple as possible, and they have succeeded in implementing the simplicity. The option to have SD card slot means you don’t have to keep purchasing from the likes of Amazon and makes it easy for you to simply take a file from a friend’s PC. The battery life is amazingly long, which I can imagine it’s a must for long journeys away from a charging station and if you like you can always carry around with you the USB charger and a USB travel wall plug to top it up when you get an opportunity to do so.
The eReaderPRO also has some characteristics deemed necessary when it comes to portable devices, that is the weight and size; it is incredibly thin and light weight, you can almost feel like you aren’t holding anything in your hand which is vital when reading a book full of pages (for prolonged use). The display is also conducive for the eyes thanks to the high resolution 6″ e-ink screen. It would be ideal for travelling, at home or anywhere you might go; it comes with a free leather-style case (save you money) for protection and easy packaging in your luggage.
