That's not the same product. The one Big Lots is selling has an LCD while the Foxit E-Slick used EInk. The giveaway is that Big Lots is touting video playback, which EInk can't do.

This seems to be a different device than the eslick from foxit.

You posted a message that Foxit's 6" Eink Eslick Reader has been discontinued.

This is the Slick Reader, which is a 7" LCD device.

We're talking about a totally different unit with a different size screen and different technology. Any reference to the Foxit Eslick with simply confuse the issue of what this device actually is.

Sorry, it was the only e-reader on the site and when I clicked on the link it said it was discontinued. So do you know who makes this one?

Sadly, no. That's what we're trying to figure out - and why the references to the Eslick weren't helping.

Here is the only other mention of it I saw-- and it has no info at all, and a UPC that doesn't work.

The "slik" is a Southern Telecom brand. Here's their site:

http://www.southerntelecom.com/

though it has no mention of the ER700 eReader (model number from the Micro Center page) on the slik sub-site.
