German company txtr has introduced the small and lightweight device that lets users download ebooks through their other mobile devices.

German company txtr has introduced the txtr beagle, a $13 small and lightweight eReader. It is 5″ tall, 5mm thick, 128g, and features an eInk display. The eReader doesn't have wi-fi, instead connecting with a smartphone app via Bluetooth to receive eBooks.

There is no need for chargers, cables, or installation, and the product comes with two AAA batteries that “enable users to read for more than one year.” These can simply be replaced when they run out and their location in the device creates an elegant and ergonomic shape that rests easily in the palm of your hand. The txtr beagle can also be personalized with back-covers in four bright colors.
