Its around $153 and can be bought from some shops such as www.thedeal.co.nz

Does anybody know if this is any good ? It seems pretty cheap. handles videos 720p , ePUB book format.
But it doesnt have the E-ink screen, just normal TFT so reading in the sunlight might be a bit hard.

Anybody got any review ??

Because this is a color e-reader, one thing I'd want to know is if you can use it in no-backlit mode, which generally only works in black and white. One of the big advantages of an e-reader over, say, a laptop for reading is that it reduces eyestrain. I've been holding off on getting a tablet partly because it would lose that advantage, and although this is called an e-reader it looks like it has a lot of tablet stuff about it. So I would do a little more research and maybe actually try one if possible before buying it.
