need the epson/e-ink 11.5" (12" or 13" would be even better but it's a start!) ASAP!

Thank you Charbax for sharing this! I spent a few years in this area. Now I am in Fort Lauderdale (1450miles or so south of Boston). This tech is simply incredible!

a 10-11" reader would be great for techdocs and such.

Interesting how the guy avoids the questions of price of the color vs. monochrome display. And how the software is going to be more expensive than the display. Uploading the software onto the finished device might as well be the cheapest part of the whole process - developing has to be done only once. I would not be surprised if the OS on an ereader already supports color, and the control chip for the display possibly already accepts color input, but has to turn it into monochrome for display.

Would love to see a large reader for home in the 14" range for a full page display. Some already in mass production (like the russian school jetbook) - but where do you buy it ...

You can buy it on Taobao in China for RMB 2800.-, the Hanvon Reader. Hanvon is the actual manufacturer of this Jetbook. I have never seen the real thing in China in a store and it seems kind of steep for a Chinese designed product (I always have my reservations about those), so I didn't go for it. Besides, the 2800.- includes the 17% local VAT.

I think that the price of the display would be dependent on the buyer (manufacturer of the device).

Anyone have any idea about manufacturers that might sell the digitizer version of that large reader?

Excuse me, I meant large screen one in the 2nd sentence. I probably should have worded it:

Quote:
I want a large screen color (preferably 14") now. Some other large screen are already in mass production like the Jetbook.
Unless his example of "devices in mass production" meant, there is this exactly ONE device. And at a price of $500 the jetbook is not really a steal is it?

But I think that a serious color large screen that is suitable for e.g. PDF files needs to have at least 300 ppi b/w resolution, so that the color resolution is 150 ppi. In the video he fails to mention that you can't turn the color off and use it as b/w with higher resolution at will. That is almost as misleading as saying: this CRT monitor has a awesome resolution - it can display 3 times HD resolution. Well yeah, DOH, because it has red, green and blue dots all over the screen.

Having a Sony 650 and Nook Color I'd LOVE for Sony to come out with a 6" color reader. I'd be set. (Metal case, please.)

Like others have posted, I'd like to see how vivid the colors are. I could deal with less saturation than LCD in order to lose the backlight and weight.

Btw the jetbook is 9.7" just like the Amazon, Onyx and the Sony, the only news here is the color.

You can't turn the color off because it's achieved with filters.
