[Librie] Sony's e-Book reader LIBRIe to use E-Paper!

04:43 AM by Colin Dunstan in More E-Book Readers | Legacy E-Book Devices

This is some great news from Geekzone :

Royal Philips Electronics, Sony Corporation and E Ink Corporation announced today the world's first consumer application of an electronic paper display module in Sony's new e-Book reader, LIBRIe, scheduled to go on sale in Japan in late April. This first ever Philips' display utilizes E Ink's revolutionary electronic ink technology which offers a truly paper-like reading experience with contrast that is the same as newsprint.

This is soooo great for us eBook fans. Look at the features:

  • reflective display (can be easily read in bright sunlight or dimly lit environments)
  • black and white ink-on-paper look
  • a resolution of approximately 170 pixels per inch (PPI) - more than any other portable device has!
  • read more than 10,000 pages (imagine a standard book with 250 pages - this equals to 40 books!) before replacing the four AAA Alkaline batteries
  • compact and lightweight form factor
  • allows users to download published content, such as books or comic strips from the Internet
  • can store up to 500 downloaded books

I promise, once this thing is out and available in my country, I will buy it!
