A new electronic ‘reader’

Interesting new attempt at an eBook reader device. The manufacturer claims that its Electronic Paper Display technology reads “just like normal paper” and is perceived as such by the human eye. Other claimed benefits include:

  • Easy navigation based upon reading behaviour.
  • Scalable text. You can change the font size of your text to suit your own reading comfort. (Format and DRM dependant.)
  • Price:$650. You can buy a lot of books from Amazon for that. And without any irritating DRM.

    Meanwhile there are rumours that Sony is about to have another go at the eReader market. Engadget has some pics.
