With the dropping prices of the Amazon Kindle and the Nook at Barnes & Noble, the e-reader wars are getting more competitive.
Borders is stepping up their e-reader game by rolling out the red carpet for their e-bookstore and slashing prices on all of their readers. The good news, though, is that if you want to get into the e-reader game but are a tad cash-strapped, the Libro Pro just may be what you want. It's a great, inexpensive alternative and a stupendous entry-level device chock full of features.
It ships later this month and is offered at Borders for a frugal $119 and comes with a boatload of features, namely 100 pre-loaded classics, SD card expansion slot (where you can store up to 40,000 books) and the ability to play mp3s. What's more, you can use the Libre pro for a staggering 24 hours continuously.
The Libre package comes included with a USB Cable, AC Power Adapter, hand strap, earphones and a carrying case.
