E-ink 7"or larger simple e-reader?

Good evening.
I started searching for a simple e-reader, with e-ink and at least 7" (the ideal would be the size of a book page).
Dont need to listen to music, web or anything. Just read books.

Which one would you recommend?
Anyone sold in Brazil?

Thankss

I'm not sure about availability in Brazil, but the Sony PRS-950 is the only eReader I, personally, am aware of that has a 7" screen. The link below is to a review of the device, so you can look for yourself to see if it's what you're looking for.

The Sony site states that this one is no longer avaiable...
Too bad, I really liked the review you sent me.

Welcome to the forum.


The only 7" eInk readers ever made were the Sony PRS-900 and PRS-950 and both are older discontinued models. I suppose you could check places like eBay for a used one (I'd stay away from the 900 and go for the 950 if you do this).


Your only real choices for screen size are 5", 6" or 9.7" (there's also a 4.3" eInk knock off).

Sorry I wasn't clear. Like AnemicOak mentioned, I was mainly referring to used models of the device. If you liked the review and don't mind buying used, then I'd definitely check ebay to see if there are any models listed at the moment.

Dutch brand Icarus is releasing an 8 inch e-paper ereader next month. I assume this is one of those e-ink clone screens. They ship internationally, but shipping to Brazil will probably be expensive.
This is the English version of the product page:

Kobo just announce their Aura HD model with a 6.8" screen. Almost 7" if that will work for you.

I was actually able to put this in my cart (with no intention of buying it), to see if it would take it. It doesn't appear to be discontinued (as indicated by another member's earlier post), but someone else may have more current information.

Note that although the product page says around 20th May http://icarusreader.com/icarus8, the store page says now delayed 'til end of June http://www.icarusreader.com/store/e-...us8-8-e-reader . Also I don't know if this is solely a problem for New Zealand, but I tried in 2 browsers and when I get to shipping, I can't select anything or see any options or anything. If I click next it tells me to select shipping option.
