In response to recent innovations from companies such as Apple and Amazon, Spring Design has announced the launch of its Alex E-reader, which will allow users to read, annotate and research simultaneously.
The Alex - which is powered by Google's Android mobile device and was unveiled last fall - features a six-inch E-Ink display, a 3.5-inch touchscreen and Wi-Fi capabilities, PC Magazine reports.
The device will also feature LinkNotes, an application that will enable authors to insert hyperlinks in their text and lead readers to online content.
Users can click on hyperlinks in eBooks, corporate documents, or periodicals that lead to relevant web-based information or to multimedia content stored on the Alex eReader that will enrich their reading experience," a company representative told the news source.
Spring Design also expects to have the gadget available in multiple languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Russian, Korean and Hebrew.
Consumers can now pre-order the device for $399, which is $100 less than the cheapest version of Apple's similar tablet computer the iPad, according to Apple's website. However, the Alex is approximately $140 more than the Kindle, a similar product from Amazon that has fewer additional applications.
