Color Me Flepia: Fujitsu Launches E-Reader
For those who don't read Playboy for the articles, Fujitsu has an e-book for you. Dubbed the Flepia, the device is what the company calls the world's first color e-book -- it can display 260,000 colors. Quite a difference from Amazon.com's Kindle black and white e-book, which retails for $359.
Various documents and images -- from books, newspapers, magazines and the Internet -- can be seen on an 8-inch touch screen in high definition -- 768 x 1,014.
The Flepia goes on sale on April 20 -- in Japan only -- and will be available through Fujitsu Frontech's online store. The price tag? A whopping $1,000. Hmm, maybe things don't look worse in black and white.
