The ATMT Tech Book Reader. The folk at ATMT were hoping to punch out this AA battery powered e-book reader for around £65.00 ($114.00) which would have made it an interesting little product all round. But alas it’s shelved at the moment, at least until sometime later this year. And unfortunately V.2 threatens to come with colour screen, navigator, media player etc, which of course will inevitably mean more money. Sigh.
The Tech Book Reader differs from present notebook computers or handheld PDAs in that it does not require high speed data processing or complex functions for the reading and editing of documents. The Tech Book reader comes as the next big thing for education and communication. Add to this the flexibility of the ebook to be moulded to suit requirements of various sectors like agriculture, health, and even defence makes it an indispensable product. The product is being currently developed to support GPS.
