Sony’s prototype for future e-reader

Last week at the 2009 International CES consumer technology tradeshow, Sony’s exhibit featured a video demonstration of the Sony Contrast Flex OLED Reader. The video is now available online via Sony Insider. As you can see in the video, the e-reader is very thin and made of a flexible material. To flip the pages, the user bends the device which creates a similar experience to reading a paper book. According to the blog, Sony is creating a prototype of the e-reader and it could be available in five to ten years, assuming that Sony continues to pursue OLED technology at that time.
