Welcome to another exclusive Good e-Reader Comparison Video! Today we check out the two latest entrants to the color e-paper market with e-Ink Triton and Mirasol. These two technologies give you a taste of color e-paper in very distinctive ways.
e-Ink Triton is e-Ink Holdings’ first venture into producing true color e-paper. e-Ink Pearl is their previous generation technology and is showcased in many popular e-readers currently on the market. The Kindle Touch, Sony PRS-T1, and Barnes and Noble Nook Simple Touch all use it. The Jetbook Color is literally the first e-reader in the world to have true color e-paper and the results are striking.
Mirasol has been developing their color e-paper solution for a series of tablets that give you very low battery draw and provide rich colors. Mirasol closely resembles Pixel Qi screens in the respect that it functions in the sun very well. Most tablets like the iPad, Nook Color, and Kindle Fire don’t perform well in the direct sunlight, and often you get glare that obfuscates the screen. Mirasol is not phased by direct light and gives you the ability to use it in any circumstances, including dark rooms.
This video gives you a full comparison on how magazines, newspapers, comic books, ebooks, and PDF files look. If you are interested in either of these technologies or how content ends up looking on both screen platforms, this video is for you!
