The Bebook was one of the first eReaders on the market. Not long after it was released Amazon entered the market with their Kindle. The company BeBook released a few readers but eventually went out of business.
I’m not sure what happened to the BeBook 2; it was taken to trade shows, and I’ve seen photos of it, but it appears Endless Ideas (the company that make the BeBooks) have decided not to go down that route. Instead, it appears there’s a new device being released – BeBook have announced the BeBook Neo!
Someone from BeBook recently contacted me asking if I’d mind putting something up about their new luxury case. I agreed to do this not because they are paying me to (which they are not), but because my review of the bebook has helped a lot of people make up their mind about the BeBook, and because I genuinely like their product. I’d like to point out, just like I did in my bebook review, that I have no commercial links to BeBook –
This review is from a technical perspective. I got my BeBook mostly for reading things like RFCs, rather then for reading novels. Most reviews seemed to cover what the device looks like, and where the buttons are, which wasn’t very helpful when I looked into buying one, I wanted to know how it preformed.
