Remember Fujitsu’s color e-book technology we saw last year? Well, the tech giant announced Wednesday that the reader (or e-paper mobile terminal as they call it) will be available shortly to purchase in Japan, under the name of FLEPia.
Amazon today announced their new and improved e-book reader, the Kindle 2, which offers up 20 percent faster page turns, seven times the storage, 25 percent longer battery life and a text-to-speech feature called “Read-to-Me” – all in a form factor that’s thinner than the iPhone.
Designer Holly Gates has developed a simple, yet ingenious e-paper reader that balances power draw and power generation so well that it doesn’t even have a charging socket. Think of it as a high-tech version of the ubiquitous solar-powered calculator that just works whenever it’s needed.
