Life is hard for dedicated e-readers these days, what with the iPad and other devices giving you so much more. And so Foxit is throwing in the towel. The company just announced that it’s killing its eSlick e-reader. Instead the company will focus on licensing its ebook software to other companies.
It didn’t help matters that the eSlick hasn’t received an update since it arrived in December 2008. It has been stuck at $199 as well, while other e-readers have been more competitive. RIP eSlick.
