$99 Android e-ink e-reader platform enabled by Freescale i.MX51e and i.MX508

Posted by Charbax – June 14, 2010

I am a big fan of the e-reader market, it helps people read again, as TV and the Internet has taken over more and more of people's time, the e-readers makes it possible to read any book, any article at any time with a quality up close near to paper quality.

I filmed an early Android e-ink prototype at CeBIT that was showcased by Gigabyte, now Freescale is pushing further the use of Android as the software stack for e-ink e-readers with the i.MX51e development board demonstrated in this video. This could mean awesome use of feed readers, where articles, blog posts could also be beamed from the Chrome browser extension directly to your Android based e-reader. The feature of adding text contents from your laptop to your e-reader could become really really powerful.
