The screen is executed on technology Microcup which differs from technology eINK a little.



The screen more white and above speed of reaction. Has the smaller price, than eINK

It is planned, in VI - quarter 2008 transition to the plastic screen (not flexible). We hope, that by then lBOOK V6 will have a retail price, approximately, 140-145 dollars.

The price for the market of Ukraine and Russia is a primary factor. Unfortunately, this device only for our market. It will not be a success in the markets of the Europe or America. We cannot compete with SONY and iREX

Thanks for the details, LVD. The fact alone that you are not using E Ink makes this a very interesting device. Microcup is by SiPix, right?

Have you had a chance to compare it in real life to E Ink?

Optical properties (contrast, reflection) are not worse eINK manufacture PVI. Speed of updating of the screen above (approximately on 30 %). The screen has 16 levels grey. Very qualitatively displays a black-white photo.

I think if you can get the retail price to 140-145 dollars, you can compete with Sony and iRex very well. This price is similar to the Nintendo DS and Apple iPod Nano, which both sell extremely well in western markets.

Will the OS be linux? There is a java-based Mobipocket reader that you might be able to get for your device.

With a name like V6, is it a Hanlin?
Is it still called eink?
Have they spoken of color?
Does the battery tube thing fit well in hand or did you just see the screen without a complete device?
Did you see it run with part of the software that will come with it?
Can you talk of it at all?

It is the project.
It not manufacture Jinke.
We have KIT for an estimation of the screen, but it not industrial sample SVGA of the-screen. We wait for the beginning of manufacture.
We do not have plans to use OS Linux in this device.

Successful sale lBook V8 has shown, that it is possible to manage in inexpensive models and without Linux. In many cases users prefer graphic books, and 10-15 Mb for storage of such book not a problem.

For example, for lBook V8 there is a simple converter which one pressing of the button, for 1 minute in a batch mode converts perfect graphic books with a table of contents.

70 percent of simple readers are very happy with such decision.

This book, just also is aimed at such audience.

At that price you CAN compete. The english software could be done with the help of the programers in the Baen group. You may even be able to talk the folks at Baen.com into handling the sales, or you could sell directly to the coustomer on e-bay.

Maybe what is needed is a distribution partner. Surely some Euro laden outfit sees the potential here, or is it a reliability, manufacturing or supply problem. Language maybe?
It can't be that bad. Could it be a guarded hunting grounds? Hmmm!

At this price I would buy two pieces immediately - one for me and one for the wife. Maybe even a third - to avoid constant fighting with my daughter :-)
