First e-ink e-book reader from Philips

Peter Rojas

e-inkThe first e-book reader that uses electronic ink should be out later this year from Philips:

The device uses E Ink's tiny fluid-filled balls containing oppositely charged black and white particles, which are layered in a thin film on a sheet of plastic or glass. Connecting this film to electronics allows the reader to display text and graphics by controlling the voltage across each ball, determining whether it appears black or white. The result: higher contrast than newspapers and better resolution than laptop screens. The 15-centimeter-diagonal display is about half the weight and thickness of comparable liquid-crystal readers.
