This is the Txtr Beagle. It’s a new low-end ereader, that does away with fancy technological trappings: you’ll find no touchscreen, backlight, 3G or even Wi-Fi here.

Not a lot, to put it bluntly. A five-inch screen, 4GB of storage, and a Bluetooth radio lurk within its svelte 5mm frame. It’s not even powered by a rechargeable cell: two AAA batteries are required, and Txtr claims one set will see you through a year of reading. Read the full story at Gizmodo.
