Sony announce 13.3-inch ebook reader


Electronic readers with big screens couldn’t carve a niche in the market for certain reasons – maybe it’s the ergonomy and the E-Ink’s compromises. This doesn’t seem to disturb Sony. Today, Sony Japan announced Digital Paper – a prototype ebook reader with 13.3-inch E-Ink display. Weighing at 370 grams, the device is equipped with a touchscreen e-ink display with 1600×1200 resolution, and the package has a stylus included. With its help you will be able to highlight text and make annotations. The battery of the device should hold up for three weeks with a single charge.

Sony will be testing the reader in three japanese universities across the year. If it doesn’t prove so hot with japanese students, we might never see it hit the market.
