At the moment, there is a real war on the market of electronic readers - almost every company that is related to the production of electronic devices has already released or is going to release its own "reader". In principle, despite this diversity, there is no particular leader who stands out with something unusual, some kind of "highlight". All this is roughly reminiscent of the smartphone market before the release of Apple’s first cellular (this is, of course, a personal opinion). And this situation can happen again if LG launches an electronic reader that is different from everything we have seen before.
In fact, they saw, of course, but only in fantastic films and cartoons of the Wall-E type. So, innovation is that it will be a super-thin flexible e-book. Plus, the company also plans to release a smaller e-book, with a color display by the end of this year (!).
At the moment, there are already color electronic readers on the market, but their main problem is the insufficient battery capacity, which should support such a display, plus the display itself is quite tiring for the eyes.
But flexible displays, if they are present in some devices, this is such a rarity, which is not worth talking about. In addition, such displays, as a rule, are "wrapped" in a fairly rigid frame, which hides all the advantages of flexible displays.
But where did you see the reader, which can be rolled up like a newspaper? Such a product will be presented on the market by LG by the end of 2010. The size of the flexible display is 19 inches, and the size of the color reader display is 9.7 inches. The company claims that the latter type of device ideally conveys colors, plus it also has a number of advantages that will be mentioned during the demonstration of the device.
It is a pity, of course, that so far there is so little information, but it is already encouraging that soon there will be devices for reading electronic books of this class. Collapse the reader in the tube - this is really we saw only in the form of concepts and in science fiction films.A source
