PocketBook CAD Reader Flex 13.3″ Flexible E-reader: Paper v.1.5

Last year, we featured the PaperTab, an extremely flexible E-ink reader prototype. PocketBook’s upcoming CAD Reader Flex isn’t as thin or flexible as the PaperTab, but it is real and will be available soon. It’s a 13.3″ e-reader that should be great for reading up to letter-size (8.5″ x 11″) documents at full size.

The CAD Reader Flex has a 1600×1200 Mobius E-ink screen, the same one that’s in Sony’s $1,000 (USD) DPT-S1 e-reader. But it appears the CAD Reader Flex will be more durable than Sony’s offering. That’s where the Mobius’ flexibility comes in. The CAD Reader Flex is only 6.5mm thick – for comparison’s sake, the iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick and the iPad Air 2 is 6.1mm thick – but thanks in part to the flexible screen you can leave it in your bag knowing that it won’t snap in two at the slightest pressure.

Aside from having an anti-Bendgate screen, the CAD Reader Flex is also dust- and moisture-resistant. Its rubber housing complements the screen’s flexibility while providing a grippy surface.

Let’s hope it doesn’t ape the Sony e-reader’s price tag. Check out PocketBook’s website to find out more about the CAD Reader Flex.
