Information about COOL-ER ebook reader
Introducing the "iPod of ereaders" - the COOL-ER eBook reader is the fantastic new British product that will revolutionise the way you read. Whether you take a book on the train, to the beach or you just like to spend an evening besides the fire with a good piece of literature, the fantastic new COOL-ER reader is the perfect new gadget for your lifestyle.
The cool-er ebook reader is 1GB in size which means it can store between approximately 500 and 800 novels. Even if you could read one book a day (which we would find difficult to believe!), a full cooler would give you well over a year of reading action and presumably would make you as knowledgeable as Stephen Fry afterwards. Whether you're a fan of sci-fi, autobiographies, romance, horror, fantasy, fiction, non-fiction, humour, childrens books - whatever - the ebook reader is your virtual bookcase that can be packed to the brim with millions of lines of literature. If you genuinely think this isn't big enough, you can expand the size of the reader with SD cards.
If you're skeptical of the quality of the reading experience, let us tell you that it uses special E-ink technology that splendidly replicates the experience of actually reading a book. The perfectly sized 6" display is glare-free and looks just like paper so your enjoyment will not be disturbed by flashes of light whilst travelling. Direct sunlight doesn't affect the screen either which means you don't have to keep chasing the shade and you can take it on holiday, saving space in your suitcase for more clothes, perhaps.
Of course, you may be worrying about the battery life. After all, you don't want to be finding out if Harry Potter manages to defeat Lord Voldemort only for the screen to cut out because the battery has died. Let us appease your worries; the internal battery lasts for around three hours and around 8000 page turns. We know you're asking; 8000 pages is like reading War and Peace five times. And if you're reading a particularly dull story and fall asleep the Cool-ER ebook reader turns itself off after 15 minutes of inactivity.
It may not have escaped your notice that the ebook reader looks awfully like an iPod and indeed, that cool scroll wheel lets you go through the menus and acts as a page turner. It also lets you switch between landscape and portrait mode. Another benefit it has over 'real' books is the font size selector; if you're finding the text size too small in your current novel of choice, the eBook reader allows you to increase the size making reading easier on your eyes. You can even change the font, should you have a particular favourite.
Another similar aspect of the eBook reader is the eight gorgeous colours you can buy it in (deep breath); shiny black, silver, lime green, sky blue, lavender, dark pink, bright pink and cool red (use the colour selector at the top of this page to change the colour of this site to your favourite!). The casing is sleek and discreet and will make you the envy of all your friends.
The gadget is also 45% lighter than other eReaders making it easy and a pleasure to use, in fact, it weighs only 178g making it half the weight of Amazon's kindle. It's also thinner than an iPhone perfect for portability and reading in public.
But the COOL-ER e-reader doesn't just let you read books - it also lets you listen to music while you read! So we suppose it is an iPod that lets you read books. It's compatible with many different formats including PDF, RTF, TXT, HTML, JPG, PRC, FB2 and EPUB. You can even choose one of eight languages.
Downloading books to read on it couldn't be easier with hundreds of thousands of titles available online. There are many stores online that sell eBooks including the mighty Amazon. It's simple - go to an eBook store (if you buy a COOL-ER ebook reader, you get 25% off at their official website for life), pay for a book, download it and drag it onto the reader via the USB port.
