New low-cost eBook reader is supposed to disrupt the eReader market.
German company txtr unveiled the txtr Beagle eReader. The stripped down eReader is supposed to sell for 10 Euro ($13), but that is just an estimate by txtr. I believe it when it is available at that price with no strings attached. Txtr is planning to sell the Beagle with mobile phone carriers. The reason is that the only way to get books onto the Beagle is via your smartphone. This would allow carriers to get a cut of the eBook business.

Other features of the txtr Beagle include 5-inch screen (800x600px), AAA batteries, ePub, PDF and 4GB storage. The txtr Beagle is weighs only 128g (with batteries).
