E-book Reader Or MP4 Player

by fantastidog / June 11, 2010 7:19 PM PDT

I love to read on bed, and so wanna get a e-book reader. But recently I have been moved by a multi-function player, which can be used to enjoy e-books, console games, videos, and music. Besides, it's cheap.
A problem bothering me is that i hope to read high-quality e-books through legal channels, and i've heard that some e-books are of specific formats. So i'm not sure whether the player suits me. I hope someone would make some comment on it: http://www.tinydeal.com/4gb-43-tft-lcd-mp5-player-game-console-music-movie-fm-recorder-calendar-alarm-photo-ebook-tvout-dpsp4g05-p-2394.html

I've seen that unit.

What KILLS you is there is no support. No one to talk to about how to get your files converted to use on this machine.

The usual Touch iPod has it all over these knockoffs. But you would ask this if you didn't have them to compare.

I don't know about that thing

For one that will not even be close to being on the same level as one of the better ereaders and seondly, when there is no name of the brand that is usually a red flag

granted $50 isn't exactly breaking the bank but, I would look to either an iPod touch for games and music or the Nook for your e-reader.
