Cheap eReader solution
It took more than two months to arrive, but it came, it saw and it conquered. I'm talking about Android-on-a-stick. It is a little larger than a USB memory stick. It comes with an HDMI connector that you attach to your TV, a Micro USB connector for power and a regular USB for a mouse, well perhaps a hub and a few other things outside a mouse. It has WiFI and BT, 8GBof memory.
Your insert it in a HDMI port, turn on the TV and switch to HDMI output. You have a basic ICS screen. Then all you do is go to Google Play and download your preferred eReader apps. Smallest font is not recommended. Total price? Less than $50.
