Daily Steals has Augen’s ebook reader on sale for today only. It’s new in box and is selling for slightly more than half the original retail price.
This eBook reader debuted last fall to mixed reviews. It’s based on a 7″ LCD screen, and it has Wifi, 2GB Flash storage, SD card slot, keyboard, speakers, and a case. It reads Epub and PDF and it supports Adobe DE DRM.
I have to warn you that there are a couple problems with this deal. This particular daily deals website isn’t very good about getting orders shipped in a timely fashion or telling the customer about the shipment. They ship, yes, but it takes a while.
The other problem is that Augen might have already shut down. I’m still looking into it, but I cannot tell that Augen is still operating. Its website is down and no one responds to emails. If the company is dead then there is effectively no warranty. I would be concerned.
