Of the smaller displays, I would recommend either a Focus or, more favourably,
the Brailliant BI14. I have this display and really love it. It connects
seamlessly with my iPhone when using it for those occasions, and I like the
interaction with the Notes app which synchronises them nicely. There is the
Esys range and Hims Smart Beetle, but with all those options at my disposal, it
would be either a Focus or Bi14.

perhaps the facility to convert text files although reading books is not so
necessary with such a small display: really it is mainly for taking when I am
away and would be used only with my Apple products for texting and emailing
with, as I said, perhaps the functions of notetaking and reading books as a
