French Dailies In Electronic Reader Trial

Several French national newspapers are currently taking part in a trial of the Read & Go “e-paper terminal”.

Le Figaro and Le Monde are among the well-known titles participating in the pilot project with France Telecom, which operates primarily under the Orange brand.

According to Pocket Lint, Orange describes its electronic reader as the “first 3G-connected mobile newspaper kiosk”.

The device enables users to download newspapers via a wireless network and is being tried out by over 100 volunteers.

The Editors Weblog notes that the Read & Go is also testing an important element of digital newspapers - advertisements.

More details on the trial can be found on the New York Times online.
