Cruz Reader also has a number of applications pre-installed including: Dictionary, Notepad, Calendar, Alarm Clock, Contacts, Games, and others. The reader comes shipped with Borders E-book portal Android application for book shopping.

A great feature is a built-in 802.11b/g Wifi card which even better gives you full browser support. Now, your choices are getting more and more. You can go with Amazon's Kindle (6in Black and White $140), Barnes and Noble's Nook, Apples iPad or stick to an Android with a big screen, in full colors and full browser internet access at $200.
