Onyx is working on a color ereader

Onyx just announced that they will launch a color ereader later this year.

We know almost nothing at this point, alas.

The color looks a bit like the time I did the laundry and accidentally mixed one white underwear with a batch of colored clothes.

I'll read the Reports from first-time buyers and get their opinions. Who knows, maybe they will have improved the contrast by the time it's widely released.

E-Ink have been working on this for years. There isn't going to be any improvement in the display between this announcement and the product shipping.

Apparently this screen uses a color filter layer similar to Triton E-ink.

In all fairness to Nate, his article traces the rumors / news from several producers. Even Kobo and Amazon (using different tech)?

The latter article about Onyx looks the same as the original Italian article.

On reflection, probably not. But I see no official announcement from Onyx anywhere. But it is starting to look real to me. If not from Onyx, then from other producers.

Very good, then.

I won't consider it any further.

Thank you.
