Gigabyte EB10 Android e-ink e-reader

Posted by – March 3, 2010

Gigabyte is secretly showing a prototype of Android running on their first e-ink e-reader project. They are trying to adapt Android for e-ink e-readers, to allow users to install whatever RSS feed reader, news aggregator, any source for ebooks, web browsers and more adapted reading on paper-like screens with WiFi or 3G connectivity and perhaps even touch screens. I’d like a browser plugin that lets me bookmark articles in one click to read later on the e-reader thus using such synchronization software within Android that generates the reading queue based on web contents reformatted perfectly to read on such screen like reading on paper.

Capacitive 6″ e-reader prototype by Sagem Wireless at Mobile World Congress 2010

Posted by – February 27, 2010

This is the first 6″ e-reader with a capacitive touch screen, it enables it to be much more compact than the Kindle as text input can be done on the touch screen. Although this is an early prototype demonstrated by Sagem Wireless at Mobile World Congress. The feature of using a capacitive touch screen on the e-reader does not remove from the readability of the screen and allows for finger touch screen input through the interfaces. A capacitive stylus input may also be supported. This device will include 3G and WiFi wireless data modems.

Here’s a picture showing the size of it next to the Archos 5 Internet Tablet with Android at 4.8″ and the PocketBook 360 5″ e-reader:
