If you didn't notice our excitement in the Spring Design Alex E-Book Reader yet, you will now. Spring Design just announced that they'll be partnering with the Borders' eBook store for their Android-powered Alex E-Reader. This is awesome news because one of the biggest sells (and underrated aspects) for E-Readers is to have an ecosystem in place to easily get books onto the device. Having a partnership with Borders solves this for Spring Design and should absolutely get Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's attention. In a sense, their competitors are joining forces.
The good news doesn't stop there. They'll be dropping the price of the Alex E-Reader by a solid $40, bringing it down to $359. The price is still hefty, and we wished they would drop it more, but a price cut is a price cut is a price cut, right?
Press release after the jump!
