Prestigio just introduced a new ebook reader, the PER3172B model, that packs a 7 inch color display and supports video and audio playback. The device relies on a TFT LCD screen with anti-reflective coating and support for a 800 x 480 pixel resolution.
The slate supports most of the popular text formats and allows the user to change the font size on it. It can even play HD video and Prestigio PER3172B uses an ARM9 processor as its brain with a 400 MHz frequency. Storage capacity is around 2GB of internal memory, but there’s also a microSD card slot capable of 16GB storage.
The Prestigio device packs a 2100 mAh battery, with enough juice for 6-8 hours of reading, around 5 hours of video playback and 30 hours of audio playback. This product is scheduled to hit the shelves of the Russian stores this month with a price of around $110. In case you wonder about size, the Prestigio PER3172B measures 11.2mm in thickness and weighs 260 grams.
