If you’re not suffering from iPad fever, there’s a good chance you still have your eyes on an e-paper based book reader, and the Spring Design Alex we first brought you back in October, and spent some time with at CES, is now officially available for pre-order for those of you who’ve been patiently waiting.
But for those of you who’ve forgotten, your $399 gets you an Android-powered eReader which features a full color LCD display in addition to the primary e-paper one. You might think the dual displays would make this particular reader an unwieldy beast in your hands, but at CES we were pleasantly surprised to find the device struck a wonderful balance between size and the usability of that second LCD touchscreen. The Alex will ship no later than mid-April which is merely a month away, so keep your eyes on the yet-to-be-updated Spring Design Shop page for your chance to order one.
