>> Donald Bell: Hey, I'm Donald Bell for CNET.com, and today we're taking a first look at the Pandigital Novel. This is an eBook Reader with a seven-inch color touchscreen and a low price of $199. The main menu offers a view of integrated bookstore, your own book library, and a dashboard of apps. Out of the box, you get options for music, photos, videos as well as a web browser, calendar, and e-mail. One of the most notable features here is the ability to browse and shop for eBooks from Barnes and Noble dot com. You can connect the Novel over WiFi, but unlike eReaders such as the Kindle or Nook, there's no cellular capabilities built in. You also don't get the anti-glare benefits of reading an e ink display since the Novel uses a color LCD. That said, for $199, the Novel packs a surprising amount of features in a thin, lightweight design. On the top here, you'll notice an SD card slot that accepts up to 32 gigabytes of external memory to complement the one gigabyte of memory that's built in. You also get a headphone jack, volume control, and a USB port. When you connect this to your computer, you can transfer any eBooks or documents you have in an ePub, PDF, or HTML format. You can also load any mp3's, photos, or a handful of video formats. As an eBook Reader, you can perform common tasks such as enlarging the font, highlighting text, and bookmarking. You also get a built-in dictionary and a nighttime reading mode that inverts the [music] text color. So that's the Pandigital Novel, a full-color, $199 eBook Reader running the Barnes and Nobel bookstore. For CNET.com, I'm Donald Bell. [ Music ]
