Alex eReaderThe Alex e-book reader comes from a company called Spring Design. It features an interesting design with a black and white reading screen above a small color Android OS computer screen below and won Laptop Magazine's "Best of C.E.S. 2010 eBook Reader" award. In TheStreet's test that compared the Alex with a second-generation Kindle, there was no contest. The Alex was too slow. And compared to Amazon's bookstore, download choices on the Alex are severely limited. Alex sells for $399.
