A working prototype of a 6.8 inch Android eReader has been unveiled this week by Netronix which comes supplied with a Wacom stylus offering users a screen resolution of 1440 x 1080 pixels and the ability to sketch and take notes.
The Netronix Android eReader is powered by a Freescale i.MX6 Solo Lite ARM Cortex-A9 processor and runs an operating system based on Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.
Netronix is a design house that dream up and finalise prototypes to be resold to third party companies and the Android eReader shown in the video below would be fitted with a different case if it were to go into production.
The video also includes a quick look at a prototype E Ink smartwatch which has also been designed by Netronix. The Arm Devices website explains :
“Wacom is working on collaborative solutions for Wacom enabled E Ink e-readers like this one. If they do it right, I think Google should get involved, this could make it a really big new market for the E Ink based devices with touch for productive collaboration in education and enterprise. Netronix also has different other E Ink Android devices, secondary displays, large ones, and even an E Ink Smartwatch”
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.Filed Under: Concepts & Design, Technology News
