The tolino shine 3 lights up a passion for reading. The new design combines aesthetics with functionality. And the smartLight technology ensures optimal, pleasant reading light at any time of day. Even though the eReader with its 15.2cm (6") display is considerably smaller and more compact than its predecessor, it offers the same reading display size. The 300ppi E Ink® Carta™ display and a resolution of 1,448 x 1,072 pixels guarantee pin-sharp letters. Thanks to the improved grip even long reading sessions are effortless. The powerful lithium-polymer battery (1,500mAh) enables weeks of reading time without connection to a power source.

Enjoy ultimate reading freedom

Whenever and wherever you feel like a new book, simply download it onto your tolino using Wi-Fi. Take advantage of permanent access to over three million books and an internal storage capacity for up to 6,000 books. If this isn't sufficient, you can use the cloud to expand your storage massively. The simplified menu functions and intuitive operation via swipe motion ensure uninhibited reading pleasure. Especially useful are the dictionary, translation and quick paging features as well as the screen lock.
