The debut of the Alex will take place at the press-only Lunch at Piero’s media and innovator event Thursday and Friday January 7 and 8, 11:30 to 2pm at Piero’s Restaurant, 355 Convention Center Drive across from the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Spring Design Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Eric Kmiec, will be available to show Alex’s full browser capabilities and patented dual screen interaction technology, the Duet Navigator that enables Alex users to search the Internet on the 3.5″ color browser LCD screen while displaying books, periodicals and even personal, educational and corporate documents on the Alex’s paper-like 6″ EPD screen. The Alex browser and virtual keyboard provide handy access to email, calculator and will accommodate a growing number of programs from the Google Android community.
Alex’s fully functional browser gives users the freedom to explore the Internet to access text, music, video, and images to enrich what they read, or annotate text with comments, multimedia or user-selected hyperlinks to other web sites and resources found online or stored by the user on the Alex E-Reader removable microSD card.
On Friday, January 8 at 3:30pm Eric Kmiec will be a speaker on a panel at HigherEdTECH, “From Dewey to Digital,” an exploration of how e-books, digital devices and sophisticated search engines are shaking up the world of textbooks and academic scholarship, moderated by John C. Itelson, Professor Emeritus, California State University Monterey Bay and Director of Instructional Technologies K20CETC, Room N264 North Hall.
Alex will also be on display at both Marvell booth locations one in the eReader tech Zone in Central Hall, and a main booth in South Hall booth # 30642.
