New eBook

New eBook from Sony

Gizmodo writes about this new ebook, pointing to an article in the Guardian

The Librie EBR-1000EP is Sony's first 'electronic paper' technology, essentially a scaled-down PDA with a highly-readable reflective screen (the Librie's screen is 170 dots per inch, as opposed to your monitor's 72-90dpi). The reader displays more than static text with its screen of oppositely charged black and white particles, suspended in an oil solution; color animations are in the works, opening up the possibility of Diamond Age-esque moving picture books.

and its light and battery efficient

Still, at only 300 grams and with battery life enough to read 10,000 pages on three AAAs, the Librie is promising technology

this is definitely a step in the right direction.
