The Spring Design Alex might launch on March 16

Watch out! Rumored launch dates are falling from the sky today. Next up is the dual-screen, Android-powered Spring Design Alex and a rumor that states the ebook reader is headed towards a March 16th launch. That’s next Tuesday, kids!

The only thing official so far is a note on the Spring Design website that reads,

Thanks for your patience. We’re almost ready with our Alex store.
Keep checking in and by the first week of March you’ll be able to order your Alex online.

We took a look at the Alex at CES 2010 and it’s definitely one step above the Nook in terms of taking advantage of the dual screen setup. Hopefully we’ll get a chance next week to see if it stands up to the Nook or Kindle in real world use, though.
