Taiwan-based electrophoretic display (EPD) maker E Ink ngs will increase the production of FFS (fringe filed switching) panels at its Korea-based subsidiary Hydis. And that E Ink chairman Scott Lou “shows off the Hanvon color eBook reader due in Q4.”
The color features are to be coupled with E Ink’s Pearl technology to offer the great color and a fast response time. The touch capabilities will come in two flavors, capacitive solution and electromagnetic digitizer. The capacitive solution would let people use the touch screen as many do today with other devices. The other flavor, electromagnetic digitizer, would allow for pen input. The pen input could make eBooks a necessity in the schools as students could read, take notes with ease, and highlight any passages they wished.
