We have our on camera tech guru explaining this incredible new innovation in all the terms you might hear for the latest tablet or smartphone. Some of the advantages of the bookbook is that it comes with no cords and is fully charged. And the battery life is eternal! They take you through the interface of the book and show how each page has zero load time for incredible resolution! They even go on to explain things like bookmarking and sharing features.
