New Kindle Oasis (2019) adds screen warmth control to save your eyes

Amazon's flagship ereader, the Kindle Oasis, is getting another update, adding a color-adjustable front light for its new e-ink display. Now in its third generation, the slender ereader carries over the style - and the waterproofing - of its predecessor, the second-gen Oasis launched in late 2017.

E Ink JustWrite makes any surface ‘digital writing enabled’

E Ink JustWrite makes any surface ‘digital writing enabled’

The folks at E Ink have a new sort of film that'll enable digital writing on a wide variety of new devices. This film is like a plastic sheet - sort of - and can be applied to any surface to create a simple electronic paper experience. Once installed, this material allows writing that'll stay in-place for an indefinite amount of time - and can be removed with a single tap of a button.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930 hands-on: Dual E Ink and LCD delight

Lenovo Yoga Book C930 hands-on: Dual E Ink and LCD delight

A good idea can turn into a great one if you stick with it, and happily Lenovo has done just that with the new Yoga Book C930. Building on the innovative but flawed idea of the original Yoga Book in 2016, this second-generation model addresses the most common complaints, throwing in a second, E Ink display, upgrading the processor, and generally making for a much more flexible - and thus useful - ultraportable.

Sony’s Digital Paper Tablet finally gets a version you might use

Sony’s Digital Paper Tablet finally gets a version you might use

When most of us think of e-ink devices, we probably think of something small like one of Amazon's Kindles. Sony took a different approach with its DPT-RP1 tablet, which features a display as large as a standard sheet of A4 paper and is meant for more than reading eBooks. This tablet was instead meant for the professional world, targeting occupations that handle a large number of documents, such as lawyers or doctors.

Light Phone 2 adds messaging to super-simple anti-smartphone

Light Phone 2 adds messaging to super-simple anti-smartphone

The Light Phone is back, and it's loosening its "naught but calls" policy to embrace the fact that not everybody likes to talk. Freshly announced today, the Light Phone 2 sets minimalistic simplicity as its lodestar: a black & white E Ink touchscreen, a few simple services, and a design more akin to a stack of credit cards than a phone. Rather than trying to replace your iPhone or Galaxy entirely, the idea is that there'll be times you don't want everything a smartphone can offer tempting you from your pocket or purse.

YotaPhone 3 announcement shows a true dual screen phone

YotaPhone 3 announcement shows a true dual screen phone

You’d have to be crazy to announce a new smartphone at the same time as a high-profile Samsung product. But, then again, Russian smartphone maker Yota was already deemed unorthodox when it slapped an e-paper display on the back of one. Now the company is back with the third gen YotaPhone, just YOTA in some markets, and its squarely aiming the two-faced smartphone at a younger generation that is happily discovering the joys of reading. Even if it’s on a minuscule screen.

InkCase i7 Review : iPhone gets another face

InkCase i7 Review : iPhone gets another face

This week I've been working with both versions of the InkCase i7 - one for the smaller iPhone, one for the Plus. Both are from the newest generation of e-ink case from the folks at Oaxis, who've made these cases for the following people: "adventurers, bookworms, the businessperson, selfie-takers, and everyone else." Thus far I've found the case to be not only interesting, but helpful and downright fun, too.

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might have colors after all

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might have colors after all

The Meizu PRO 7, when it comes out in the next or so months, is going to be one strange phone. That's going to be true whether this latest bit comes to pass or not. Putting a second screen on a phone's back isn't exactly new. There's even a Kickstarter for offering something similar for the iPhone 7 pair. But whereas previous implementations put a full-sized e-ink screen on the back, the Meizu PRO 7 will supposedly have a "mini" screen instead. And it might not even be grayscale e-ink at all.

InkCase i7 gives the iPhone 7 an e-ink screen on the back

InkCase i7 gives the iPhone 7 an e-ink screen on the back

The YotaPhone seems to have struck a chord among some smartphone users. The ability to have some information, or picture, always on display even when the phone's screen itself is off definitely useful. And having a handy ebook reader with you all the time is something bookworms would love. But the problem with the YotaPhone is not only was it limited to Android, it also meant having to buy a new phone, even if you were already an Android user. iPhone users, on the other hand, were out of luck. Now, however, they have fighting chance with the InkCase i7 finally launching on Kickstarter.

Dual-screen YotaPhone 3 announced in China for 2017 release

Dual-screen YotaPhone 3 announced in China for 2017 release

You may remember back to 2015 when you heard about an odd device called the YotaPhone 2 featuring not one but two full-size screens, with the rear being an E-ink display. Well, the Russian company behind the phone, Yota Devices, has announced it's making a successor called the — wait for it — YotaPhone 3. Unfortunately, this announcement, made at a conference in China this week, was very slim on details.

Sony FES Watch U 2nd e-ink watch is now on sale

Sony FES Watch U 2nd e-ink watch is now on sale

One of the biggest complains about smartwatches is how quick they are to die during the course of the day. What if you had a watch that could at least last for days while still have some of the fashionable options of smartwatches? That's what Sony subsidiary Fashion Entertainments sought out to do with its e-paper wearables. Now in its second run, the new Sony FES Watch U is now available for purchase, in Japan at least, offering a smartwatch that is really more a fashion accessory than a geek toy.
