A German electronics company called Txtr has unveiled the Beagle, what is almost certainly the cheapest (if not the tiniest) E-Ink reader in the world. The Beagle weighs just 4.5 ounces; has a small 5-inch Electronic Ink screen; and costs just -- are you ready for this? -- 10 Euros, or about $13 U.S.
What's the catch? Well, for one thing, you're not going to get many of the features you'd expect on an eReader. The display is small (5 inches, compared to the Kindle's 6-inch display); there's no touchscreen or illuminated display, like you might find on the new Kindle Paperwhite or Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight.
