It has 128MB internal memory storage and offers USB and an SD Card slot that supports up to 4GB card. The power consumption of this device is not high since the screen draws very little power. A full charge to the battery can last readers for 8,000 page turns.
eSlick is a great device for reading magazine, ebook, journal, etc while on the move. Users also can convert their document into pdf format and read it with eSlick. While traveling, users also can plug their headphones into this device and make use of the built-in MP3 player for some music. The down side of this ebook reader is it doesn’t have wireless connectivity. Users cannot synchronize reading materials via wireless connection. Users can only download these materials to their computer and copy them manually to eSlick.
