Avid Reader? Kindle Fire’s not for you

Avid Reader? Kindle Fire’s not for you

In just a few hours time, Amazon is expected to reveal its latest Kindle model, the Kindle Fire, a tablety-take on what the megaretailer thinks will claw iPad buyers away from Apple's clutches. To do that, it's reportedly readying every aspect of its not-inconsiderable might: multimedia, cloud storage, and the ability to squeeze margins out of content rights-holders like juice from a blood orange. Don't let the Kindle part of the name fool you, however; if you're the avid reader that has so far been Amazon's target customer, the Kindle Fire isn't the product for you.

AUO Sipix e-paper display can show video at a sloth-like 6 fps

AUO Sipix e-paper display can show video at a sloth-like 6 fps

Today one of the big downsides to e-paper displays is that most of them can't show video. The screens are also generally only in gray scale as well. That gray scale bit is changing with some of the color screens that are coming to the market eventually from E-ink. The colors the E-ink screen shows aren’t nearly as nice looking as a normal LCD though. The upside to e-paper and E-ink screens is that the things sip power making the devices they are integrated into much easier on batteries than devices with an LCD. Eventually we will end up with color e-paper screens that will run full motion 30-fps video, but that tech is not here yet.

Qualcomm mirasol gets intelligent LED lighting; in ereaders this fall

Qualcomm mirasol gets intelligent LED lighting; in ereaders this fall

Adding illumination to e-paper screens seems pretty counter-intuitive - after all, what makes the display technology special is that it looks like paper and doesn't need backlighting - but that's just what Qualcomm has done with its latest mirasol prototype. It makes sense, too, The Digital Reader discovered when Qualcomm whipped out the ereader mock-up at CES On The Hill this week; rather than backlighting the display, the new mirasol model actually has an embedded front light.
