About this project

The Good e-Reader 13.3 inch e-reader was the first product we ever released and many users wanted something smaller and more affordable. This was the reasoning behind our new 6.8 inch Android e-reader! You can take notes with the accompanied stylus or use the touchscreen. You can view and edit your favorite PDF files or read an e-book.

One of the big advantages of our e-reader is that the battery lasts over a month and the e-paper display allows you to take it outside, without the sun obfuscating the screen. The front-lit display has 8 LED lights, which allows you to read in the dark and optimize the brightness levels. 

Specs

The Perfect e-Reader 

The e-reader industry is saturated with 6 inch e-readers that offer limited functionality or lock you into dealing with 1 company. The Good e-Reader 6.8 bucks the trend by giving you a full touchscreen experience that allows you to take notes with a customized app and save the notes to the internal memory or your SD card.

The best thing about our e-reader is that it runs on Google Android 4.0 which is the best operating system for e-readers. You can install your favorite apps and access your entire e-book collection with up to 32 GB of internal storage.

Some people are used to their favorite note taking apps and want to use them with the Good e-Reader 6.8. That is totally fine by us! We support OneNote, Evernote and a myriad of others.

We believe in being e-book agnostic, which means you can read e-books from any of your favorite retailers. We support Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and your local library. You can also your favorite digital title in hundreds of different languages, including Arabic.

The Good e-Reader 6.8 allows you to easily change the font size, font type or make highlights and annotations. If you are unsure of a word, you can look it up in the dictionary of your choice, or share a favorite passage on social media.

Digital Note Taking

 Just like writing with pen on paper, use the stylus to write fluidly and directly on the panel, easily highlight text and erase notes. You have the same ease of movement, plus the surface rejects your palm, so functionality is never disrupted, the way it can be on regular tablets. 

The stylus has over a thousand degrees of pressure sensitivity and there are hundreds of different pen types you can customize. There are dozens of different backgrounds you can select, depending on the task.

Beneficiaries of Good e-Reader 6.8 include lawyers, governmental agencies, policymakers and legislators, professors and researchers in higher education, and executives. Students and consumers will also benefit from the native note taking functionality, which is 100% optimized for an E Ink display.

Spending time with the Good e-Reader 6.8 is like living in a possible post-physical paper world.

Download Thousands of Apps

 The Good e-Reader App Store for E Ink is the worlds first Android market that is optimized for an e-paper screen. There are thousands of apps currently available that have been 100% tested and verified to ensure that they will provide users with a robust experience. 

You will be able to craft your own experience with our 6.8 inch e-reader.

Want to download both Kindle and Kobo to read e-books you bought on another device? You can do that.

Want to take a break from reading and play Words with Friends? You can do that too.

Do you want to install Moon+ Reader, Aldiko, Manga Box, or Comixology? Yes, you can!

Support the 6.8 Inch Android e-reader

 Our first campaign on Indiegogo featured a giant sized 13.3 inch e-reader and in 11 months we raised over $329,000. We learned a lot from our first commercial product and are really excited to offer the same firmware on the 6.8 inch e-reader that our 13.3 inch e-reader employs. The Good e-Reader team spent countless months to make sure the note taking experience was on point and the e-book library management system is truly excellent. We really think this device is very robust and more fluid than our first generation model. 

If you can pre-order a unit, that would be great. If you can only afford to donate a few dollars, every bit helps. We could also really use your social media support, by clicking on the Twitter/Facebook buttons. Alternatively, please let your favorite tech blog know about our campaign.

Risks and challenges

Good e-Reader has been covering e-readers since 2008 and we know the type of devices that people really want and where the competition falls short. The 6.8 inch e-reader was designed for people who do not want a "me too" product and geared towards providing maximum flexibility for your day-to-day tasks.

We have an engineering sample in our possession and this is the final version of the hardware before we ship it out to our backers.

If we can meet our goal we can ship out these units to our backers in October and we are working on upgrading Android from 4.04 to 4.4.
