Pocketbook has announced the upcoming release of two new Pocketbook ebook readers, the Touch Lux 4 and Basic Lux 2.
Pocketbook offers a wide variety of models. These two new devices don’t have any cutting-edge features but they have an interesting design with page buttons below the screen and they’re very lightweight at just 155 grams.
Both have 6-inch E Ink Carta screens with 212 ppi, and both are equipped with frontlights.
The Touch Lux 4 has a touchscreen but the Basic Lux 2 does not.
Both have 8GB of internal storage space and Pocketbooks are about the only ereaders left with microSD card slots.
They both have a 1GHz processor. The Touch Lux 4 has 512MB of RAM and the Basic Lux 2 has 256MB of RAM. Both have Wi-Fi and micro USB ports.
Pocketbook’s device support a wide range of formats, including PDF, EPUB, DJVU, FB2, FB2.ZIP, DOC, DOCX, RTF, PRC, TXT, CHM, HTM, HTML, and MOBI.
Too bad Pocketbooks aren’t sold in anywhere in North America. Sometimes they can be ordered from international sellers on eBay and Amazon but the prices are a lot higher than domestic models.
