the readius:digital book

although the price of 359$ is not yet set the technology is here: the readius: a cyberdigital book made by polymer vision, a company company in Eindhoven, the Netherlands,(which spun out from Philips in 2006) that created the device and come up with an ingenious solution. Last year we saw Sony's Reader . the readius chas E Ink display that's similar to the Sony Reader, except for one important factor -- it's is designed mainly for reading books, magazines, newspapers and mail, is the size of a standard cellphone. Flip it open, though, and a screen tucked within the housing opens to a 5-inch diagonal display. The screen looks just like a liquid crystal display, but can bend so flexibly that it can wrap around a finger
i still need to feel the pages through my fingers but its a nice idea for long travel,39029552,49287756,00.htm
