New tolino shine 3 eReader in a new, minimalist design

At the start of the 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair, the tolino Alliance reinvented its best-selling tolino eReader “tolino shine”. The new tolino shine 3 stands out from the previous tolino eBook readers especially in terms of design. The tolino shine 3 presents itself with high-precision touch screen and smartLight function and is the lightest 6 inch eReader of the brandtolino.

The tolino shine 3 offers even more possibilities for individual use, such as the left-handed mode, the personalisable sleep screen and the alternative gesture control. A good five years after its foundation, the tolino alliance of German booksellers, one of the leading brands for digital reading in the German-speaking world, is delighted with the growing number of active tolino readers.


The tolino shine 3 will be available from 10 October 2018 in the more than 2,000 bookstores and online shops of the tolino alliance partners in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.


tolino shine 3: Lightness and minimalist design for an attractive eReading experience

The third edition of the tolino shine seems clearer, almost minimalistic due to the more angular corners, the handy texture on the back and the absence of the home and light buttons. The eReader is controlled exclusively by a much faster and even more precise wiping technique. For the first time, all the device’s functions have been clearly bundled in the menu and can be operated intuitively via the touchscreen. The noble look of the tolino shine 3 is completed by the colour Black-Ink. The house font of the tolino brand has now also found its way into the eReader software and completes the consistent brand identity of the joint bookseller brand tolino.

In addition to its new design, the tolino shine 3 is particularly easy to handle: despite its unchanged display size of 6 inches, it is the smallest and lightest tolino shine of all time and weighs only 166 grams.



Natural reading experience and extra-large memory

Optimised lighting: For readers who prefer to read eBooks in bed at night, the tolino shine 3 now offers the optimum reading experience with the same smartLight innovation as the tolino premium devices tolino vision 4 HD and tolino epos. The colour temperature of the integrated reading light is automatically adjusted to any time of day or night by special warm white and cold white LEDs, perfect for the biorhythm. For even better legibility, the shine 3 has been designed for higher contrast with a pin-sharp 300 ppi E Ink® Carta™ display.

While we’re on the subject of size: The tolino shine 3 also significantly increases storage space and offers three times as much storage space for eBooks as its predecessor tolino shine 2 HD. From 8 GB memory 6 GB are available for contents and/or eBooks – that means place for approximately 6,000 books.
