John Lewis pitches 80-quid colour e-book reader

No mention of the T-word

Application security programs and practises

If Samsung's 7in Galaxy Tab is too big for you - let alone Apple's 9.7in iPad - then how about this 5in "colour e-book reader" that the middle classes' favourite retailer, John Lewis, will be offering this Christmas?

Out under the name of UK electronics supplier Sovos, the SVEBK5-B has a 480 x 800 LCD and measures a neat 149 x 104 x 11mm.

It'll handle Divx, MPEG 2 and MP4 video files; JPEG and BMP pictures; MP3, WMA, AAC and Flac audio; and text, PDF, FB2, PDB and ePub e-books.

The gadget has 1GB of storage on board, but you can add more by slotting in an SD card.

The battery life stretches to seven hours' e-book reading, five hours of video playback or 30 hours of music listening, John Lewis said.

And it's only 80 quid. ®
