The Amazing Skiff e-Reader

Skiff Reader

Skiff Reader

The Skiff Reader measures about 23 x 28 cm (9 x 11 in.) and is only 6.8 mm (0.3 in.) thin. It is a rugged metal foil e-Paper display made of silicon thin-film transistors laid onto a flexible stainless steel substrate. In other words, it is crack-proof and shatter-proof. I like that!

The display size measures 29.2 cm (11.5 in.) diagonal with a 1200 x 1600 pixels resolution (174 ppi). It is touch screen and you can use a stylus or your finger. It accepts a rechargeable Li-ion battery that averages about one week’s worth of reading and wireless usage.

The Skiff Reader is 3G-enabled, WiFi-enabled, with 3+ GB of internal memory available for content, with extra memory supplied by a SDHC card. A built-in speaker accepts a 3.5mm standard audio jack.

Just can’t wait to see what Apple is going to spring on us concerning the iTablet (or iSlate). Imagine something like the Skiff Reader with the added power of a computer in it! I know, I’m dreaming… 😉
