Cool-er expands its presence and lineup with new offerings this year. The first, [[xref:http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/product/324710/review/cooler.html|which we reviewed|Interead Cool-ER ]], was acceptable for a basic and inexpensive e-reader, but I never liked the stiff controls. The company introduced three models at the show—the Cool-er Compact (with a 6-inch E-Ink screen and 2GB of onboard memory), the Cool-er Connect (with Wi-Fi and a touchscreen), and the Cool-er 3G (due midyear). The readers support ePub and PDF, and Cool-er has an associated online bookstore with 2 million titles.
