Spring Design is the company behind the cool Alex eReader that is set to make its official debut at CES. Spring Design and Google have announced today that they have teamed up to give the Alex access to the digital books Google has scanned.

Alex users will have access to over a million Google Books online or via download using the integrated Android web browser of the Alex reader. The touch screen browser lets the user search the web and read eBooks directly on the 6-inch EPD and browse the web on the color screen at the same time.

The user will also be able to click on links in eBooks and have them open directly to the website on the color screen below. EPUB books are searchable using Google API applications provided with the Alex eReader.
