The Cool-er is the first ebook reader from Interead
The Cool-er appears to have vanished. The websites are gone.
The Cool-er supports Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) with both ePUB and PDF with or without DRM. As well as supporting TXT, RTF, HTML, FB2, MOBI/PRC (without DRM), JPEG and MP3.
Both the hardware and the software (firmware) are generic Netronix EB-600, and so this is very similar to the Astak Mentor Lite, Inves-Book 600 and Elonex 600EB (sold by Borders UK).
