Pandigital’s 9-inch Novel ereader tablet goes on sale

Pandigital's new, black Novel ereader tablet has gone up for sale at QVC, though it's more expensive than originally expected. The company first said the Novel - which has a 9-inch color LCD touchscreen - would be $199.99, but the retailer is listing it for $213.80.

That gets you WiFi b/g, 2GB of onboard storage and a 4GB microSD card, as well as a leatherette case. No sign of which Android OS version the tablet is running, however, nor what CPU is inside.

    if you look at the item it includes the case in the package. They also sell the item for 199.95 without the case. So it is at price they suggested. You are showing the item number that includes the case. Item E166914 is just the reader alone for 199.95.

      Very easily, you use the slide app that came pre installed and choose your app and click download.. and then install.. poof it is all there! I have downloaded about 20 apps since getting the device two days ago..

    Lisa: I also have been trying to find out how to get Android Apps on the Pandigital eReader with no success so far.
    CRAZE: Since you said Android apps can be installed on this, HOW does one do it?

    AND: Does anyone know HOW to update/upgrade the Android 2.0 to either 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3

    Has anyone ever gotten any support from Pandigital? I have been trying email and phone calls and NOTHING. They do NOT respond. Also, does Novel 7 support games? My unit says to update flash player and install Java, however the unit does nothing.

      I have been trying to contact them as well. mines will not stay charged and I hate it.

      • Gjwyse

        I left mine plugged in all the time and killed the battery. They said it only takes 4 hours to fully charge  and to wait ’till it tells you the battery is low before plugging in again.

      I have the 7″ Novel…has the Android 2.0 OS……already downloaded 25 apps,I can see youtube but need to use the Skyfire Browser. Flash will not work unless you have the 2.2 OS. The Skyfire Browser also lets you view videos from news feeds, etc. Be sure it been upgraded. I have spoke to Support at Pandigital a few times already…..no problem getting thru.
