Pandigital Novel: Color LCD eBook Reader that Runs Android Apps

Pandigital's Novel enters crowded reader market (Benny Evangelista, SF Cronicle)
Quote:
Pandigital's Novel has a 7-inch color touch-screen LCD display and connects to the Internet through Wi-Fi. The Novel, which runs on Google's Android platform, can also play video and other multimedia content.
Quote:
Although the Novel has more iPad-like functions than an e-reader, such as the ability to run Android apps, Finnegan stressed he was not marketing it as a full tablet or netbook computer. But the company believes it can tap a larger mass market than its e-reader competitors.
