Pocketbook at IFA: XGA+Frontlight Prototype for 2013

At IFA 2012 PocketBook had one of their latest developments on handóan early prototype of a 6-inch ebook reader with LED lights built into the screen.

In fact the implementation of the light looks a lot like what B&N did with the new GlowLight Nook. There are five LEDs located along one edge of the screen, exactly like the Nook, and what appears to be a thin layer over the top of the screen to distribute the light evenly.

Itís hard to tell from the video because itís in Russian, but according to the article that goes along with it, PocketBook is planning to release their lighted ebook reader in 2013.

Not only will it have a light, itís also expected to use an HD screen. Regular E Ink screens have a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, whereas HD screens have a resolution of 1024 x 768.
