The Green Book: World’s Lightest E-Reader Unveiled
Posted By Ariel Schwartz On June 8, 2010 @ 5:00 pm In green gadgets | No Comments
Want an e-reader  that’s lighter, smaller, and more streamlined than either the iPad  or the Kindle? You can have one — if you speak Chinese. Taiwanese company Green Book Inc. recently unveiled the Green Book — the world’s lightest e-reader — at the Computex Taipei trade show.
The pocket-sized Green Book weighs just 0.4 pounds, compared to the iPad ‘s 1.5 pounds. Green Book offers a tiny six inch screen and 32 gigabytes of memory, or enough memory to store 30,000 books. The device can read 8,000 pages per full battery charge — more than enough for a week’s worth of reading sessions.
But despite the Green Book’s impressive portability, Amazon and Apple  won’t have too much to worry about in the English-speaking world. Unlike the Kindle and iPad, Green Book is intended primarily for Chinese-language titles.
