Foyles adds BeBook Neo to its eBook collection

4th March 2010

Foyles is set to become the first UK high street retailer to stock the wireless BeBook Neo eBook Reader.

The device will be available from the London bookstore from today (March 4th) and will retail at £279.

It is the first wireless eReader sold in the UK which allows people to choose where they purchase eBooks from and offers readers access to Google and Wikipedia using a built-in Wi-Fi connection.

The paperback-sized gadget is the quickest eReader available, offering up to 2.5 times faster browsing and operating speeds than its competitors.

Foyles currently stocks a range of eReaders including the BeBook Mini, the Cybook Opus and the Sony Touch Edition eReader, while its ever-growing online eBook store boasts over 73,000 titles.

Last month, journalist and broadcaster Charlie Brooker said he is an eReader convert in a blog post for the Guardian.

He said that while at first he was sceptical of the devices, he soon realised that they have a number of advantages over carrying a paperback around, such as no one being able to see what you are reading.
