Q: Can I share eBooks?
A: Many of Barnes & Noble's titles include Lend Me technology exclusive to Barnes & Noble. Look for books with the Lend Me icon. The loan can be done simply on your PanDigital Novel by entering the email address of the recipient. They will then have up to two weeks to enjoy the title before it will automatically be returned to your library.

Q: Is it Mac compatible?
A: Yes, it is Mac OS X compatible.

Q: Which files formats does it recognize?
A: Your PanDigital Novel will recognize these file types:

  • eBooks: EPUB, PDF
  • Video: MPEG4
  • Images: JPEG (JPG), PNG, GIF, BMP
  • Audio: MP3, WAV, AAC

Q: Can I read protected eBooks?
A: Yes, if you know the security code to unlock.

Q: What languages does it support?
A: The menus of your PanDigital Novel are currently only in English (additional languages to come with future firmware updates). However, it can display and allow you to read any language which is in the supported file formats.

Q: Where can I use it?
A: Your PanDigital Novel was designed to accompany you throughout your day. Its backlit LCD display will come in handy while reading in bed or other areas where lighting is not ideal for traditional book reading. Since it is an LCD, you won't want to try and read it in direct sunlight. Look for a shady place to sit. You also want to protect it from getting wet.

Q: How many books can I store in it?
A: This is hard to say as the book files vary tremendously based on type and content. If you assume each book is 350KB, you would be able to hold over 3,000 titles if the majority of your internal memory was used for books. Keep in mind you also can swap out SD memory cards for limitless storage of all of your media.

Q: Can I listen to audio files on it?
A: Certainly! Your PanDigital Novel includes a music player which will play any MP3, WAV, or AAC file.

Q: Is it easy to use with a computer?
A: Yes. Simply plug in the USB cable and it will be automatically recognized by most supported computers. Please note that if you use a separate USB hub accessory, this can sometimes preclude the auto-find ability. When connected, you can then drag and drop your book, picture, music, or video files directly into the device memory. However, it is not necessary to ever connect your PanDigital Novel to a computer. As long as you have a WiFi connection (or can use a public Hotspot), you can download books from Barnes & Noble, surf the web, or make use of any of the device's features.

Q: Can it be used to view academic texts with different types of symbols?
A: Yes, as long as the book file is in EPUB or PDF file format, it should not be an issue.

Q: Can I read documents created on a computer?
A: You can bring over files you created yourself from your home computer as long as the document file is in EPUB or PDF file format. Many other formats like Word can be readily converted to PDF (www.adobe.com).

Q: How do I transfer files to it?
A: You can do it a number of ways:

  • Simply plug in the USB cable and it will be automatically recognized by most supported computers (please note that if you use a separate USB hub accessory, this can sometimes preclude the auto-find ability. When connected, you can then drag and drop your book, picture, music, or video files directly into the device memory.)
  • Load your files onto an SD memory card. You can then access directly from the card or selectively choose to import.
  • If you've loaded your Gmail or Yahoo email account onto your PanDigital Novel, you can send many file types as email attachments. Simply save them from the email.

Q: Is it possible to sort the eBooks?
A: The My Library feature on your PanDigital Novel has many options:

  • There are a number of auto-sort selections which run along the top (Date, Title, Author). Simply click on these to sort.
  • Each auto-sort selection, when tapped, allows you to choose whether you show All B&N Titles, B&N eBooks, B&N eMagazines, B&N eNewspapers, or Local Titles. Use these to further narrow your view.
  • You can create custom bookshelves. Organize in whatever way you wish by genre, family members, colors, whatever! You can name each bookshelf as you prefer and then add books from your library to the shelf you choose.

Q: Can the font be changed?
A: You can change the font size to Small, Medium, Large, or Extra Large.

Q: Does this come with Blue Tooth?
A: No.

Q: Is it wireless?
A: Your PanDigital Novel communicates via WiFi (802.11 b/g). If you have a WiFi connection to the internet in your home, you can connect. Also, there are many public Hotspots (common name for WiFi availability) offered by both civic institutions (Public Libraries, etc) and private businesses (many coffee shops, restaurants, airports, etc).

Q: What is the screen size?
A. The LCD display is a 7" diagonal 800x600 resolution panel. It is a little over 5-1/2"H x 4"W.

Q: Is it a touch screen?
A: Yes. Touch the screen with your finger or with the included stylus.

Q: Can you watch movies from Netflix?
A: You can download content from Netflix's in the supported MPEG4 file format and then watch it on the unit. You can watch the movies direct from the SD card. The Novel doesn't support live streaming from Netflix's site.

Q: Can you watch TV on Hulu?
A: Currently, no. Hulu relies on Flash which is not supported on the PanDigital Novel. However, Hulu does state they are working on support for Android browsers.

Q: Do I have to add antivirus if I use it for emails?
A: No, this should not be a concern.

Q: Can you save a game to an SD card and play it in the eReader?
A: No. To play a game typically means you are loading an application. So whether local memory or SD card, the device is not configured for loading of applications and will not work as noted. You can find some non-flash games on the web and play those on the browser.

Q: Is the reading material in English only? Are there Spanish options?
A: Language options are driven by the publisher. Mostly English, but there may be some multilingual options depending on the publisher.

Q: Will the Wi-Fi on this item work in Europe?
A: Yes.

Q: Can you put your appointments/schedule in a calendar?

Tablet Glossary

Glossary of Tablet Terms

3G/4G: 3G and 4G are mobile communication technology standards that provide Internet services to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. The "G" stands for each generation of technology, making 4G (or LTE) the faster successor to 3G. Unlike tablets that are only Wi-Fi enabled, those with 3G or 4G will be able to access the Internet (and therefore email, social networks, app downloads, and the like) outside of wireless networks, providing more freedom to use all of your tablet's features. However, that connectivity usually comes with an increased cost, as well as a monthly fee.

Accelerometer: A motion sensor that detects a tablet's orientation. For example, when you turn your tablet from portrait to landscape orientation, the content will generally adjust to fit the screen. This is the accelerometer at work. Some games and apps also incorporate the accelerometer in other ways, though this varies from program to program.

Ambient Light Sensor: Determines how much light is available in the area surrounding your tablet and adjusts the screen brightness accordingly. This conserves battery life, allowing you to get more use out of each charge.

App Store: A digital distribution platform for software, such as the App Store for Apple® or the Google Play market found on Android™ devices. This allows you to download applications, or apps, sometimes for free and sometimes for a fee. Apps will vary by store, operating system, and manufacturer. Most tablets come with some apps preloaded.

Bit/Byte: A bit is the smallest unit of measurement for electronic data. Eight bits equals one byte; approximately 1,000 bytes equals one kilobyte (KB); 1,000 kilobytes equals one megabyte (MB); and 1,000 megabytes equals one gigabyte (GB). These units determine how much information your tablet can store and retrieve.

Bluetooth: A form of wireless communication allowing devices to communicate with each other. For example, a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse might be compatible with a tablet, allowing these components to be used wirelessly.

Bus Speed: Measured in megahertz (MHz), bus speed is the speed or frequency at which the data on the motherboard is moving.

Capacitive Touchscreen: A type of touchscreen display that is very responsive to finger touches, allowing easy swiping, which generally results in an intuitive user interface; however, they won't respond to a gloved hand or stylus. See touchscreen for more information.

Chipset: A set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manages the data flow between the processor, memory, and peripherals. It is usually found in the motherboard of a computer or tablet.

Cloud Storage: Allows data to be stored virtually in storage space hosted by a third party, as opposed to on your physical hard drive. Cloud storage can be advantageous because it may make it easy to share information across devices or among users, as well as freeing up your own physical hard drive space.

DDR (Double Data Rate): A type of SDRAM (memory) that supports data transfers that effectively doubles the speed of the RAM. Double data rate type three (written DDR3), which is currently in use, is twice as fast as its predecessor.

Digital Media: Can refer to the places where digital files are stored (memory cards, hard drives) or the files themselves (photos, videos, MP3s).

eReader: Also called an eBook reader, this refers to a mobile electronic device designed for reading digital books (eBooks). While some tablets exist simply for this purpose, like the most basic Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook models, most modern tablets have an eReader feature built-in, such as the iPad® iBook® app.

Expansion Slot: A slot that allows you to "expand" your tablet functions by using memory cards. Not all tablets have expansion slots, and they're generally more limited than those found in computers.

FaceTime®: A proprietary video calling service from Apple, which comes built into Mac® computers, as well as iPad, iPhone®, and internet-enabled iPod® devices. It functions basically the same as other video chatting services, though is restricted to users with Apple IDs (so you can't use FaceTime on your iPad to call a friend with an Android tablet). FaceTime calls can be made across various devices (iPad to iPhone, iPhone to Mac), so the service is particularly useful to those with multiple Apple devices.

Flash Memory: Sometimes called internal memory on tablets, this refers to how much room you have to store media files like photos, apps, and music. While a computer's hard drive might have hundreds of gigabytes of storage space, a tablet's memory much more limited, a trade-off for being so portable.

Geotagging: The process of adding geographical identification information to media. For example, if you take a photo with a GPS-enabled mobile device, the device may automatically add information about where the photo was taken. Usually, this can be turned on and off in a tablet's settings.

GPS/GLONASS: GPS stands for "Global Positioning System"; you're probably familiar with the ones designed strictly for vehicles, but modern mobile devices usually have some kind of GPS feature installed, eliminating the need for a standalone GPS. Some devices use GPS with GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System), which works alongside the GPS to provide faster, more accurate directions.

Graphics Card: Also called a video card, it's what allows the tablet to display pictures.

Gyroscope: Often combined with an accelerometer in a tablet, the gyroscope allows for more accurate recognition of movement. This is particularly useful in motion-controlled apps and certain games, which utilize more advanced controls than those that only use an accelerometer.

Hardware: The physical components of a tablet.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): The uncompressed, all-digital standard used for high-definition (HD) quality for consumer electronics and PC products using a single cable (an HDMI cable).

Hertz (Hz): A unit of frequency equal to one cycle per second.

High Definition: Means that the screen will be "widescreen" and at least twice as clear as standard definition (which is 480 horizontal lines). Generally, anything at 720 or more horizontal lines will be considered HD; 1920x1080 resolution refers to Full HD; and 4K (or 4,000) horizontal lines refers to Ultra HD.

I/O Ports (Input/Output): The connectors on a tablet that connect its external devices, such as a USB port.

IPS (In-Plane Switching): LCD screen technology was first introduced in 1996 and now used in many displays. IPS technology offers wide viewing angles and consistent, accurate color reproduction without blur.

iSight® Camera: A proprietary camera of Apple, previously an external webcam. Not to be confused with a FaceTime camera, iSight refers to the rear cameras in more recent iPhone, iPad, and iPod models, which generally have a higher resolution than the front-facing FaceTime camera.

LAN (Local Area Network): A set of devices, such as computers, printers, or video games, physically or wirelessly connected for interactive communications wirelessly.

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display): A type of display that uses standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. Unlike LEDs, they don't produce their own light.

LED Backlighting: A way of producing light in LCD screens, resulting in a much clearer, brighter, better-looking display.

Level 2 Cache: Often written as "L2 cache," this is a type of memory capable of high-speed storage, enabling quick access to the most recently used data and instructions.

Lightning Port/Cable: The power connector used on Apple devices starting in September 2012 with the iPhone 5, fourth-generation iPad, iPad mini™, 5th generation iPod touch®, and 7th generation iPod nano®. It replaced the 30-pin adapter, with Apple claiming improved functionality and power capacity as reasons for a new proprietary charger.

Lithium-ion/lithium-polymer: A light, rechargeable battery often used in portable electronics such as tablets and smartphones.

Memory: The place where a computer keeps programs and data. This could refer to the hard drive, RAM, or cache.

Memory Card Reader: A device that accesses data on a memory card, such as an SD card.

Motherboard: A tablet's main circuit board. It's the central, essential part of a computer to which most other integrated parts are connected.

Multi-touch: A touchscreen or touchpad, sometimes referred to as multi-gesture, that recognizes two or more fingers, incorporating advanced functionality like pinching to zoom.

Network Card: A network card, network adapter, network interface controller, network interface card, or LAN adapter is a computer hardware component designed to allow computers to communicate over a computer network. It allows users to connect to each other wirelessly or by using cables.

Oleophobic Coating: An oil-resistant coating applied to touchscreens to help reduce fingerprints and smudges.

Operating System (OS): Software that takes care of basic system activities such as reading forms and saving to disk. It controls how system resources are used and provides a user interface. Tablet operating systems are generally optimized for a portable touchscreen experience. Among the most popular mobile operating systems are Google's Android, which can be found on a variety of devices, and Apple's iOS, found on iPhone, iPad, and internet-enabled iPod devices.

Processor: Also known as the CPU (central processing unit). As the primary element carrying out the tablet's functions, it's effectively the "brain" of the tablet. A dual-core processor has two execution cores, while a quad-core has four, etc; generally, more cores allows for faster computing.

Processor Speed: The rate at which the CPU performs calculations per second. It's measured in megahertz (MHz) or gigahertz (GHz). 1000MHz equals one GHz.

RAM (Random Access Memory): The place where a tablet keeps programs and data when they are in use. It's measured in megabytes or gigabytes (see bit/byte for more info).

Resistive Touchscreen: Can typically be used with a finger or stylus, but require pressure to be applied to the screen, which can sometimes affect ease of use. See touchscreen for more information.

Retina Display: A type of LCD screen specific to newer-model Apple MacBook Pro®, iPad, iPhone, and iPod devices. Retina displays have a high enough pixel density that the human eye is unable to notice pixelation at a typical viewing distance. Basically, Retina displays are clearer than typical LCDs.

SATA (Serial ATA): A way of connecting a hard drive to a computer. Most computers made after 2005 use SATA hard drives, which is generally faster and more efficient than SATA's predecessor, PATA.

Screen Resolution: Maximum number of pixels that can be displayed on the screen. This number is a product of the number of columns and the number of rows. For example, a display with 1920x1080 resolution can display 1,920 columns of pixels and 1,080 rows of pixels. The higher the resolution, the clearer the screen; see high definition for more info.

Software: The actual programs on a tablet, as opposed to the physical components. This includes apps and the operating system itself.

Solid-State Drive (SSD): Like a standard hard drive, a solid-state drive is used to store data. However, SSDs read and write files much more quickly, resulting in better performance overall. Hybrid drives combine the standard features of hard-disk drives and solid-state drives, resulting in a more optimal performance than a hard drive alone at a better price than a large SSD.

Sound card: A piece of computer hardware that controls its sound input and output.

TFT (Thin Film Transistor): A type of LCD flat-panel display that is made to be as thin and light as possible, taking up less space than bulky old-school computer monitors. TFT displays also generally have higher resolutions than older displays.

Touchscreen: A display you can interact with by touching it with an object, typically a finger or stylus. Touchscreens are one of the defining characteristics of tablets. For more information on different kinds of touchscreens, see capacitive touchscreen, resistive touchscreen, and multi-touch.

USB (Universal Serial Bus): A high-speed serial port technology that allows a variety of input and output devices to be easily attached to a PC. A USB device can be plugged in or unplugged without turning off the PC and is automatically recognized and configured upon plug-in. Typically, modern computers will have USB 3.0, USB 2.0, or some combination of the two. On paper, USB 3.0 is faster, though how much faster will depend on other factors, like your hardware.

Webcam: The term webcam is a combination of "web" and "video camera." They can be used for video chatting or recording videos, and are built into most tablets. Some tablets may even have two cameras, one that faces the front and one that faces the back, with the front being more suited for video chatting.

WiDi: This Intel-developed technology is short for Wireless Display, and lets users to stream music, movies, photos, videos, and apps wirelessly from a compatible tablet to a compatible HDTV or through the use of an adapter with other HDTVs. WiDi technology is capable of Full HD 1080p video and 5.1 surround sound audio, but you'll need the appropriate hardware to achieve that.

Wi-Fi: Wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high speed Internet and network connections. Wireless networks will generally use a 2.4GHz or 5GHz network, with 5GHz networks being able to carry more data. Some devices offer dual-band Wi-Fi, which works at both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. Some newer tablets use MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) Wi-Fi, which increases the performance of existing Wi-Fi networks.

Important Information

Wireless capability may require a network connection, accessories, and/or a service fee. Use of Bluetooth technology may require software and accessories. Please consult the manufacturer's documentation regarding the safe and proper use, handling, storage, charging, and disposal of products containing lithium-ion batteries.

worst ebook ever! I purchased this ebook 2 years ago. Barnes and Noble's server will no longer connect or download to it. It will not allow the kindle app to download and is, overall, a piece of garbage. 01-30-13
worst product ever this product started out good.but in a quick 2 weeks it went sour..it is now a useless object..unable to download any updates as required by manufacture. It won't even power on. Pandigital has no replies or answers to fix this issue. 01-06-13
Great deal, great price, great product!!! I purchased my Pandigital in 2010 I love it! It is working just fine. I have downloaded several books, uploaded photos and music without any problems. Surfing the internet is a breeze, I even have shopped on line via QVC without a hick up. I take it with me everywhere. The latest and greatest multimedia readers/tables are out and I am not the least interested in replacing my 2 year old Pandigital 08-13-12
Screen cracked. Bought 2 of these. One screen cracked a couple days after getting them and the other cracked about 2 months later. Not from abuse either, just horrible horrible material. QVC Should have returned everyones $$ that had a screen break. 03-16-12
Not what it seemed Ordered two of these as Christmas gifts last year. Before the easy pay had even been completed both screens were broken. Would not recommend this reader. It is a little TOO fragile. Too late to return them and screens aren't covered under warranty. Stay away from this product. 01-18-12
WORST PURCHASE EVER...DO NOT BUY Purchased this as a x-mas gift for my girlfriend on thetoday's special value. It worked for about 1 month, and then all of a sudden it stopped working. It wouldn't turn on after it had been charging for 24 hrs. and when it did turn on all of the pre-loaded books were lost. Contacted Pandigital's support and they are no help!!!! Never even called back. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! 12-08-11
Pandigital is Junk I bought the TSV 7" reader last year for christmas. The first time I charged it after using battery life, it died on me. Called Pandigital--as the info sent with the machine told me. Pandigital tech support is less than poor. After many phone calls and conversations, I ended up sending the reader back to get a new one. Six weeks later, I rec'd a new one without all the preloaded books, etc offered for TSV and THAT reader's touch screen technology was very poor and THAT one conked out after a few uses. Save your money for a decent working reader or tablet on the market today. 11-30-11
Don't buy this eReader! I had been looking for an eReader and saw this presented - looked good. It's junk. Can't turn the pages most of time. The books loaded onto the eReader aren't labeled and have to be loaded to even see what they are. Learn from my bad choice - Don't buy this eReader! 11-09-11
Junk Bought this as my only gift last Christmas for myself. Very slow. Battery got low : Lost all the books. No access to get them back. Send Pandigital an Email they said just reload. That is not possible. Very very disappointed ................ Very expensive junk. 10-11-11
Screen breaks too easy I purchased 3 of these, one for myself, my daughter and my mother. We enjoyed them for the short time we had them. However, within 3 months all of them had broken screens (cracked). The first one occured on my daughter's and I assumed she had done something even though she swore she didn't. My mother and I then purchased the hard cases to protect ours. However, each of them had cracked screens with weeks of one another. Since I kept mine in the case when not in use I never could understand what happened. I have since switched to the Nook and am much happier. 09-11-11
Do not Waste Your Time or Money! My husband brought this for me for Christmas because he thought I 'd like to read my books with a color screen. I should have sent it back immediately but I kept it to use to surf the web. It ended up with a crack across the screen not even two months after purchase. I still have no idea how. Their customer service, as already mentioned is completely non-existent. I figured out how to use it anyway with a lot of flipping of the screen going on. I went to use it the other day and it had two more cracks. Again, I have no idea how the screen cracked the first time, let alone the newest cracks. So as other reviews say the screen cracks really easy. The device is completely unusable. 08-15-11
