What’s missing from ebook readers!

May 21st, 2008 · No Comments

I love to read, recently I have split my reading between ebooks and paper books mainly since both have advantages. I have been using my windows mobile phone to read ebooks for some time now and while the experience is good a larger screen and some dedicated buttons would be a huge improvement. I have been eyeing the Kindle from Amazon and several other smaller readers but the all lack what makes my phone the best ebook reader out there … a backlight. How hard would it be to add some LED lighting around the side of the Kindle or a competitor if back lighting doesn’t work. I know this will eat into my battery life but I honestly don’t care. The ability to read in any lighting will outweigh the lost time and if I can charge over a mini USB cable the problem is further reduced.

Give me an affordable ebook reader with a backlight and loads of content and I’ll be all over it.
