These apart, some of the other anticipated eReaders due for release in
2010 include Bookeen Orizon eReader, Copia eReader, Fujitsu FLEPia,
Hanvon WISEreaders, RCA/Audiovox Lexi eReader, Samsung E6 & E10
eReaders, and Spring Design Alex eReader. Some of these eReaders have
made use of electronic ink technology, while others utilize full-color,
backlit LCD display screens.
2010 will also witness the release of a number of tablet PCs, which can be
used as eReaders. The keyboard-less HP Slate is the most anticipated, as
presented by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at CES 2010. Other’s include
Cydle’s M7 Tablet, Dell “Streak” Slate, Freescale Tablet, HP TM2, Levono
IdeaPad, MSI Dualscreen Ultramobile PC Prototype, an unnamed tablet
from Nvidia and Verizon, Paradigm Shift EMT-10AB/W tablet, and Viliv S10
The Apple iPad is a quantum leap, not just for eReaders but for electronic
publishing in general.
The device takes eReader technology to a whole new level and will no
doubt capture the public’s imagination in the same way that the iPod and
iPhone have done in their respective markets.
2010 is the year the eReader will finally enter the mainstream.
And stay there.
