Hanvon is set to start shipping the first colour reader with an E Ink screen made by Cambridge E Ink. E Ink screens have two major advantages over LCD 1. they use far less battery power and 2. they are readable in the glare of direct sunlight, unlike the iPad screen.
E Ink supply E Ink 90 percent of the world’s e-readers with their black and white screens including the Kindle, Sony Readers and the Nook ereader. The Hanvon ereader is not designed as a direct competitor to the iPad but designed as a dedicated colour reading device.
Hanvon’s new E Ink tablet fitted with a 9.68-inch colour touch screen will arrive in China this March for around $440.
