It seems PocketBook is about to release another ebook-reader with a color E-Ink display.
The Pocketbook InkPad Color, is a 7.8" device very similar to the Inkpad 3 but with an E-Ink Kaleido 2 display, like their 6" model from last year.
Reportedly it goes on sale in Russia and various eastern european countries for ₽21.999 (about $295) coming March.

|Hisense A7 5G|
Today Hisense announced the release of their new e-ink smartphone, the A7 5G. What do we know? I haven't been able to find much information about the phone as I don't know Chinese and the webpage won't load for me fully. It is said to be a global release, so I guess that means Google Play?
Here is a link to the phone: https://item.jd.com/100009643325.html
According information posted to a reddit thread, it's going to be bigger than the A5: https://old.reddit.com/r/eink/commen...ves_1999_yuan/ (6.7 inches, according to the post) and will be followed by a colour version in February.
What do you think?
Myself, I'm a bit torn - I don't need a bigger screen and 5G, which I think has the potential to be a big battery drain. But if it has a faster processor than the A5 Pro and warm frontlight, I might consider it.

|The 2021 Annual Reading Challenge List Thread|
2021 Reading Challenge List Thread
Welcome to our 12th Annual Reading Challenge!
The Annual Reading Challenge is neither a race, contest, nor an “exclusive club”, anyone can join! This is just a fun activity that some of us have enjoyed doing in the past. Many of us have found reading challenges to be an entertaining way to set goals for ourselves, get ideas for books, and see what others are reading.
This thread is for you to keep a running tally for your chosen challenge. Please state your goals at the top of your post (in the title line if you can), and then start your list in the body of your post. As you read books, edit your post to update your list of books read, or other challenge status.
Please Remember: No discussion posts in this thread. Please use the other thread for that. Non-List posts will be deleted or moved to the other thread.
Discussions & Ideas can be found here:
Post #2 of this thread is dedicated to a Table of Contents for all participants in this thread. Names will be added to this TOC in alphabetical order with a link to that individual’s post number from this thread.
