Is electronic paper ready to hit the big time?
Plastic Logic is set to unveil a version of electronic paper at Demo (a tech trade show in San Diego) today, one that the reeling newspaper industry desperately wants to succeed. The device still doesn’t have a name, nor will it have a price—we’ll have to wait until CES to find out what it costs (provided it doesn’t “leak”).
The paper updates wirelessly, and is able to store hundreds of papers of content, be it from books, newspapers, magazines, whatever.
For comparison’s sake, this new device from Plastic Logic has a screen that’s 2.5 times bigger than the Kindle, which wasn’t exactly hurting for screen real estate.
The mystery screen should be available in the first half of next year.
