As per the latest e-reader news that we have, Japanese electronics major Fujitsu has brought to the fore their new e-reader that boasts of a color display. The e-reader that the company revealed is believed to be a prototype of their latest offering in this segment, an ultra slim color e-reader. No details or tech specs were made available during the launch event.
The earlier e-reader Fujitsu had come out with about a year ago had a 768×1024 display and 260,000 color reproduction. Flepia’s, as the e-reader is named, is equipped with a touch sensitive screen and requires a stylus as the primary interactive tool. Flepia also has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, but then, all of these came at a price, a cool $1000. However, the Flepia never made the journey to North America and its also unlikely the new e-reader will also remain alien to America. But then, it can be the precursor of what to expect from Fujitsu next in the e-reader segment. Also, in light of Flepia’s impressive tech specs, it perhaps will be safe to assume that the new e-reader is likely to be a state-of-the-art device with many technical innovations to boast of.
For that however, one will have to wait for the official launch which is going to happen sometime later this year.
