PocketBook's CoverReader is a smart cover for mobile phones that adds an e-reader functionality via a 4.8" E Ink display. It integrates with the Android OS to allow you to easily view books and information on the E Ink panel. The first model will ship for Samsung's Galaxy S4 soon, and the company plans to develop more versions for more Samsung, HTC and Sony phones.
