Ruby Red Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 Turns up for $130

Ruby Red Pocketbook Touch Lux 3

A few months ago Pocketbook released a limited-edition ruby red version of their Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 ebook reader.

Pocketbook’s ereaders are mostly sold in Europe and parts of Asia. They don’t show up very often in the Americas, except from places like eBay.

A 3rd-party merchant on Amazon has started selling the ruby red Pocketbook Touch Lux 3.

Currently the price is listed at $109, which isn’t bad, but shipping adds an extra $20.75.

There haven’t been very many red ereaders on market so the red Touch Lux 3 definitely stands out. Sony used to offer red on a couple of models but they were discontinued awhile ago now.

As far as specs go, the Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 has an E Ink Carta screen with a resolution of 1024 x 758 pixels (212 ppi). It has an LED frontlight, a capacitive touchscreen, page buttons, 4GB of internal memory, and it has a microSD card slot for cards up to 32GB.

It also has Wi-Fi and Dropbox integration and supports a number of formats, including Adobe DRM and ePub and PDF. Check the PocketBook website for the full list of specs and supported formats.

  1. IS it possible to review Pocketbook Inkpad 2 ?

  2. Hi — I would just like to know where the pocketbooks are sold in Europe — I have a friend in Germany who could buy me one and ship it to me. I am interested in the Inkpad 2 — I am still using my old 902 which sat for a few years and resurrected when my Kobo died.

    • Other than eBay and the occasional random seller on Amazon, I don’t know where Pocketbooks are sold at all, but then again I don’t live in Europe so I’m not familiar with their distribution channels there.
