It seems like it wasn’t very long ago that Sony released their first ever electronic ink book reader for around $350. For a limited time, you can pick up one of these nifty devices for just under $100.
E-Ink has announced a major upgrade to their electronic paper display technology which should substantially improve the quality over the earlier generation of displays.
E Ink’s new Vizplex display modules have a new switching mechanism which will allow the displays to refresh almost twice as fast as prior displays.
Sony has officially announced that their long-awaited e-book reader will be hitting the streets this October for about $350 USD.
The Sony Reader features an innovative high contrast E-ink display, capable of allowing up to 7,500 pages to be displayed without a battery recharge.
