E-Paper's Here

JKottke brings us the best look I’ve seen so far at the new technology. His reaction?

What you can’t see from the photo is how insanely crisp and clear the text on the “screen” is. It was book-text quality…it looked like a decal until you pushed the next button and the whole screen changed. It was *really* mind-boggling and you could instantly see how most books are going to be distributed in the very near future. Despite looking like a computer, when you were reading, it felt like a book because of the resolution (a very odd sensation). And it’s not only for books…I was told that there’s e-paper that’s capable of full-color 24 fps video. Can’t say enough about how blown away I was by the Librie.

Update: No, wait, actually, here’s the best look. Here’s a pretty good one.

Seems nice, but if they want ebookreaders to buy this they must make it capable of reading openformats like txt,pdf,doc,html, etc
10Mb? Come on...i need much more than that. A hardrive sounds good, but it would drain the battery way to fast. I suggest a standard usbmemory or some memorycard like compact flash.
