Playlist Aluratek Libre Touch color e-reader has usability flaws

Macworld
23 August 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) More and more devices are blurring the lines between ebook reader and tablet, but the Aluratek Libre Touch isn’t one of them. While it does support basic Web browsing, email, and multimedia playback, the Libre Touch is first and foremost an e-reader with a color touchscreen and integration (via Wi-Fi) with an online bookstore. But although its feature list is respectable, usability flaws make the Libre Touch a tough sell, even at its attractive price.
  • Pros: Wi-Fi access to books via Kobo Books, Inexpensive e-reader with resistive touch LCD
  • Cons: Unattractive interface, Resistive touchscreen is difficult to use, Color LCD unusable in bright sunlight

Best Tablet Review
13 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The Aluratek Libre eBook Reader Pro perked a lot of eBook reader’s ears when it was announced due to its low price of $179 ( currently $149 at Amazon ). Basically a rebranded JetBook Lite with 100 free eBooks, the Aluratek Libre has the same reflective 5-inch LCD screen, SD card expandable slot, weight of 8 oz., replaceable AA battery power supply and supports ePub, PDF, TXT, FB2, MOBI, PRC and RTF eBook formats.

Aluratek Libre Touch Ebook Reader

PC Magazine
8 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The Aluratek Ebook Reader tries smartly to compete with the Nook Color, but fails to be compelling as a simple tablet or as an ebook reader.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. Color LCD. Email, calendar and browser built in. Works with Kobo bookstore.
  • Cons: Cloudy, dim, unresponsive screen. Slow. No Android Market access. Short battery life for an ebook reader. Wi-Fi-only.

  • Excerpt: The e-reader universe is evolving at a breakneck pace, and one thing that remains yet to be determined is what defines an e-reader. In the beginning, we saw models with electronic-paper screens; now in the mix are tablets with LCDs, as well as dual-screen electronic-paper and LCD products.
