The idea of a company bringing a large e-ink device to the market is not new. We have seen these ideas a number of times in the past. The latest news coming from E-ink suggests that PocketBook will be releasing a 13.3″ CAD reader using E-ink’s Fina technology. As the name implies, this device could be useful for designers, engineers, and other professionals.
- Android 4.0
- 13.3″ E-ink display
- 1600 * 1200 resolution
- dual core 1GHz processor
- 2 GB of RAM
- 16 GB of storage space
- 8000 mAh battery
Here is how E-ink explains what Fina offers:
Fina is a glass based TFT technology that uses a very thin glass substrate to deliver products that are much lighter and thinner than what is possible with standard LCD displays. Fina displays weigh less than 50% of the weight of an equivalent glass based TFT and are less than 50% of the thickness as well. This is particularly important for mobile products requiring larger display areas. A 13.3″ Fina display module, installed in the PocketBook CAD Reader, weighs approximately 60 grams.
Let’s not forget this is not an e-book reader but I wish it were. The device will be on display on December 5th.
