It doesn’t have an eInk Pearl screen (it’s SiPix, not as good as eInk), but in some ways it outdoes the latest-generation Sony Reader! Not only does it have a touchscreen, it also has an accelerometer and many more type sizes and styles than Sony. Plus — and this really floored me — iPhone-like Pinch In/Pinch Out for decreasing/increasing type size! That’s what Sony should have put in the new Reader!
The video has no sound. If it takes too long to load, right-click to go watch on YouTube (where videos always load faster). It’s worth watching all of this.
A shorter demo video with sound after the break.
I watched that and immediately thought: This is what the next Kobo Reader should be. But at a price far less than $249 — and with eInk Pearl!
