Oct 26, 2010

Borders has announced some special deals on some of the eReaders that it sells. The company is offering up a $25 gift card to all who purchase the Velocity Micro Cruz tablet. The tablet is up for pre-order right now at a price of $299.99. That tablet runs Android and has a 7-inch screen and can play video, music, surf the web and acts as an eReader.

The Velocity Micro Cruz Reader with WiFi is on sale now for $169.99, which is a $30 discount. The Cruz Reader has a 7-inch screen and multimedia capability. The Kobo is also on sale for $99.99 right now and the Aluratek Libre is at $99.99 as well. All Sony products that Borders offers are on sale at a 20% discount.

If your tastes are more towards the Kobo Wireless eReader, borders is offering five free books to those who pre-order the new reader at $139.99. The Kobo Wireless has a 6-inch e-Ink screen, 4-button navigation, and more. The downside is that the four free books are ones that Borders has picked and won't be to the tastes of every one. The books are "Slow Death by Rubber Duck" by Bruce Lourie and Rick Smith; "Soccernomics" by Stefan Szymanski; "Phantom of Pemberley" by Regina Jeffers; "Eye of the Raven: A Mystery of Colonial America" by Eliot Pattison; and "Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America" by John Avlon.
