The information is on russian site, a small news about color e-ink device by Fujitsu. Fujitsu shows this device at CEATEC. May be there is anybody from Japan, who can visit this exhibition and take photos?

Hopefully it'll take ages to come to market since like a few others I've just shelled out for the Sony.

I'm seriously impressed they got colour working though.

I saw the photos in http://www.akihabaranews.com/en/en/n...ok+reader.html

The first photo shows a japanese famous manga.
The reflection of the first photo is a little obvious, but the second isn't. WHY?
I am intereted in its release date toward the market.

Glad I waited on buying the Sony. This is closer to my dream device.

It looks to me like the reflections are a combination of the device being behind a plate-glass window, and the display finish being smooth, rather than an anti-glare finish.

Is it just me, or does that rascal look back-lit to anyone else?

Anybody know if it has/needs a back-light?

On the first picture the device seems to be behind the glass, hence the reflection.
On the picture with the scale, it just lighting, not back-lit, imho.


Since it's still A5 sized reader, I don't see any benifits, at least for me, to get it instead of Sony.

AFAIK, it's still the same tech fujitsu was displaying in their flexible stuff. Cholesteric LCD, which still, is an LCD and therefore requires a backlight or to be made transflective.
Cheers!

Screen size is very nice, but colors are not enough. At least not for reading comic-books, which is what the next generation of E-ink displays should aim to.

Well, the Sony Reader will do for a couple of years. Then, we shall see...

Manga is 99% black-and-white, so that's more than enough for Japan.

But no good at all for Vertigo comic-books, which makes up most of my comic reading (plus Alan Moore).

vga 480x640? I don't believe it. The pics don't show that low resolution... I mean Sony Reader has 800x600 and 170 dpi... So this device have very low dpi? Barely readable? That's why it has only manga and no text on promo pics.
