Tour of the E Ink CES 2014 booth, featuring all the latest coolest E Ink devices on the market and prototypes. The E Ink device that I think is the “Best of CES” is the 13.3″ Sony DPT-S1, the biggest and the lightest ultra-readable 13.3″ touch device in the world (currently only released in limited few-thousand unit trials in Japan) uses the 13.3″ 1200×1600 Mobius E Ink display with protective film instead of glass for it to be ultra-thin at 6.8mm and weigh only 358grams and to also offer a better stylus experience. Aloso featuring the latest E Ink for Smartwatches, thus keeping the display always on, which is important for a Smartwatch. Featuring new giant E Ink clocks to put on walls, E Ink signage displays, the latest E Ink e-readers on the market and more.

Check me out on the official HKTDC channel showing some of the coolest devices at the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics fair. Also check back in the many days to come as I’ll publish the more than a hundred videos that I filmed at the Hong Kong fair. Some of my picks include the MediaTek Powered Smartwatches, the Spreadtrum Powered E Ink Android phone, the Rockchip RK3188 Powered HDMI Sticks and Tablets. Check back for all my videos to be posted! (I had a problem in the last day and a half, my Intel Powered ultrabook has crashed and burnt a 4th time in the last 18 months I’ve used it, it doesn’t boot up anymore, now I’m borrowing a laptop while I also just gave away my 11-month old Samsung ARM Chromebook last week (bad timing) as I’d like to buy a new one later this month, Exynos5420 Powered Chromebook would have been best but another Exynos5250 Powered HP Chromebook 11 will do if nothing else gets released before).
