tolino shine 3

More than just good looks

The new design of the tolino shine 3 combines aesthetics with functionality. However, even though it is much smaller and even more compact, the eReader still provides the same sized reading surface as its predecessor with a 6″ display. Better handling is guaranteed thanks to both the new format and the structure of the non-slip surface on the back. The latter will give you a good grip on the eBook Reader, making long reading sessions effortless.


The simplified interface pools all of the device’s functions clearly in the menu of the tolino shine 3 for the first time – you can now also operate the reading light and start page navigation intuitively by swiping.


And the freedom to read is also as convenient as ever with tolino: you decide when and where to buy your eBooks. In the online shops of tolino bookstores, you can now browse through more than 3 million eBooks around the clock and download your favorite new books straight to your device.

Optimal reading light at all times

The tolino shine 3 lets every story appear in a favorable light – day and night. The tolino smartLight provides optimal reading light on the tolino eBook Reader at every time of day or night. The color temperature in the integrated light automatically adjusts to suit the time of day and changes in harmony with the natural daylight, from cool white light in the morning to warm white light in the evening. This makes it perfect for your biorhythm – especially if you like to read before bed. Of course, you can also adjust the smartLight to your individual preferences or the ambient light: choose between a cool or warm light on your eReader. In addition, the high-contrast, high-definition 300 ppi E Ink Carta Display offers an eye-friendly reading experience that’s just like paper.
