E Ink Begins to Sample Capacitive, Color E-Readers


Filed under:

E Ink Samples Colored E-readers
It appears that color E Ink readers aren't as far from being commercially available as most have thought. E Ink Holdings (formally PVI), the group responsible for the screens housed in Amazon's Kindle and Sony's Readers, is leading the way by offering samples of its color panels to manufacturers. In addition to creating color-capable displays, the new screens are capacitive, meaning all their touch-based interactions will be drastically improved. While Amazon may not want any part of this now, as it waits for a more established and tested technology to emerge before releasing a multicolored Kindle, China-based Hanvon has already taken the bait, promising to release color E Ink readers by the end of the year. Who knows, maybe in a couple of months they'll be kicking things off with a smashed ice sculpture of Amazon's logo, hailing death to the drably colored Kindle. [From: Engadget]
