Foxit eSlick eBook Reader powered by E-Ink technology
I am offering to take orders for the Foxit eSlick eBook Reader, a portable novel-sized reading device that allows you to read your eBooks, documents, anything at all.
The company Foxit produces one of the best LIGHTWEIGHT PDF Reader for Windows, and is the best alternative to the Adobe Reader to read your PDF documents.
And they have come up with the eSlick, combining their PDF technology with an ebook reading device.
For those who have yet to heard about the Amazon Kindle, the eBook reading device that has taken US by storm, the eSlick uses the exact same technology, minus the DRM lockdown.
Its 6" E-Ink (otherwise known as ePaper) reads off just like paper! And thats not all, the e-Ink screen does not use any energy to display, but only sips energy when a page change (refresh) is needed. That way, average battery life extends around 2 weeks, depending on usage.
Of course, we are more than willing to allow you to sample the units, as we are currently making arrangements to have the eSlick displayed in a few retail outlets. But from now till then, you can make arrangements with us to sample the demo units we have as and when we are free.
And believe me reading enthusiasists, you will love this device

Some Background Information
I am a very good friend of the boss of Desinix Co., whom has painstakingly obtained the official reseller ship of Foxit eSlick. As a IT gadget geek, i am of course more than happy to test some sample units for him.
It is very good.
Since he is unsure of the Singapore market's reaction, and i love this forum so much, i requested him to give me the right to conduct an MO for him at SGHeadphones.
Its a win-win situation here, he get the statistics he want (i would be keeping track of the no. of views and the actually confirmations for him), and you lovely guys at SGHeadphones get a nice discount off a very great gadget (and arguably one technology that has the most potential to change our lives again in the future).
Some pictures i took when i am trying it out.
As thin as a pen.
