First color e-ink e-reader possibly out this fall
Engaget had a posting today indicating that Fujitsu might release the first color e-reader this fall, and in an A4 size. The battery life is expected to be about 50 hours. The device will be wifi enabled, and will retail for around $950. The price is a bit hefty, but with one device entering the market, others are sure to follow -- along with drops in price. There is another posting on Engaget about the device which appeared a couple months back.
