Borders UK has launched the Elonex, which at 189 is the cheapest e-book reader available in the UK, into its stores this morning (30th June). The device comes with 100 titles already pre-loaded and can hold up to 1,000 books. The titles can be read in landscape or portrait and text can be magnified. Users can read up to 8,000 pages between charges. It can also be read in direct sunlight. The device supports ePub and Adobe formats and is compatible with the e-books being sold on Borders website.

Borders said the the e-reader had been "specially developed" for Borders UK and at 189 would be "taking on the Sony Reader (which typically costs at least 199) head-to-head". Waterstone's launched the Sony Reader in its stores last September.
