Will a color version of the Cool-er device hit the market early next year?
The Digits blog is reporting that, Interead, the maker of the Cool-er e-reader, is preparing to debut an enhanced e-reader at the Consumer Electrics Show in January. According to Chief Executive, Neil Jones, the device will have a color E Ink screen and wireless capabilities. If the device is released early next year, it could be the first color E Ink reader to launch in the U.S. Interead is also planning to try out a different approach to sell its e-reader this holiday season. In December, the device will be available for purchase on QVC, the home-shopping network.
