PocketBook announces new 7.8inch reader

PocketBook, one of the largest global manufacturers of premium e-readers based on E Ink technology, has announced the availability of its new book-size e-reader, PocketBook InkPad 3 with 7.8-inch E Ink Carta™ screen and advanced SMARTlight feature. The large size along with the record low weight of only 210 g makes the new PocketBook InkPad 3 a great companion for comfortable reading anywhere.

The refined design of the PocketBook InkPad 3 ably combines smooth rounded corners with sharp edges, soft-touch parts of housing and glossy buttons. The device with dimensions of 195 x 136.5 mm is only 8 mm thin. On the front, there are ergonomic paging buttons, which can be used most conveniently together with the touchscreen of the device. Due to the inbuilt g-sensor, the user can choose the most convenient way to hold the e-reader – in vertical or horizontal position.

The new e-reader supports MP3 format via micro USB adapter. For a user it means not only convenient opportunity to listen to music while reading, but also enjoying audiobooks. Moreover, Pocketbook InkPad 3 supports Text-to-Speech function, which converts text into spoken voice. Just choose a book and switch on Text-to-Speech and the e-reader will read aloud any text file in any of the supported formats.

With the built-in Wi-Fi and easy to use services as Dropbox, Send-to-PocketBook, PocketBook Sync and PocketBook Cloud, a user can quickly download any content without connecting it to a PC. PocketBook InkPad 3 initially contains 97 preinstalled free e-books in 14 languages, including 7 in German and 8 in English. The preinstalled Abbyy Lingvo® dictionaries allow to read and translate, using 24 language combinations. A built-in cover sensor allows putting the e-reader into sleep mode by closing the cover, thus using the battery even more effectively.
