Pandigital Novel

Pandigital announced the Novel on Monday, along with a partnership with bookseller Barnes & Noble, which has agreed to integrate its online bookstore, with more than 1 million e-books, into the device.

The Novel is a multimedia device with a 7″ color touchscreen that has a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, weighs a pound and includes Wi-Fi connectivity for buying and downloading books and browsing the Web. The Novel gets up to six hours of battery life in reading mode. The Novel has a mini-USB port for moving files between a PC or Mac and its 1 GB internal storage that can be expanded through the e-reader’s SD/MMC memory card slot.

Other features include a virtual keyboard, a built-in dictionary, the ability to display content in either portrait or landscape mode, play music and video and supports PDF, ePub, and HTML formats.

The Novel is less expensive than the Kindle, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $200. The Kindle starts at ($259) $189. Pandigital plans to make the Novel available in June.
