Amazon intros ad-supported Kindle 3G for $164

Amazon on Monday revealed a new discounted version of its popular Kindle eBook reader. Amazon’s announcement came on the same day Barnes & Noble announced its all-new NOOK eReader. When asked during a Q&A session after Monday’s press conference if Barnes & Noble would ever consider releasing an ad-supported NOOK, CEO William Lynch laughed and said it was highly unlikely — but Amazon seems to be having some success with the ad-supported model. Joining the company’s $114 ad-supported Wi-Fi Kindle is the new $164 Kindle 3G, which gives consumers the option of saving $25 and dealing with advertisements. The device is otherwise identical to the standard Kindle 3G, which features a Pearl E Ink display, a full QWERTY keypad and free 3G connectivity. Hit the break for the full press release. More →

Epson and E Ink to introduce high resolution e-book reader displays

Epson and E Ink to introduce high resolution e-book reader displays

Epson and E Ink have together developed an e-book reader display with a 300 pixels-per-inch display which practically means that you won't be able to see those pixels while you read stuff on any device with this display. Apps containing engineering diagrams, illustrations, Asian symbols and other intricate content, which couldn't run on Amazon's Kindle 167 pixels-per-inch display, will now be able to run on this technology by Epson and E Ink. The former will manufacture the 300 dpi or pixels-per-inch screen which will measure 9.68 inches diagonally and the latter will produce the platform that will control the display. This jointly-developed device is being shown at the E Ink booth at the SID event currently underway in Los Angeles.
