Delta Electronics to launch color epaper reader in 2010

ComputerWorld is reporting:

Taiwan's Delta Electronics plans to start marketing a new 13.1-inch color touchscreen ereader and an 8.1-inch monochrome touchscreen device around the end of the second quarter, which use e-paper technology from Japan's Bridgestone.


Hui Lee, director of the e-Paper business program at Delta, said her company is still open to finding partners to market both the 13.1-inch and 8.1-inch devices. If a company wants to brand the ereaders and take them to market, Delta will manufacture them. The Taiwanese company is a contract manufacturer.

Delta is, however, also talking to content providers in Taiwan and plans to launch the devices on its own or through a subsidiary if a partner cannot be found. Both devices offer note-taking capability, and 3G or Wi-Fi wireless technology can be added if a partner wants such technologies aboard.

I couldn't find the original source, but I'm currently pursuing it.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
