Texas Instruments has an ebook reader

It's only a reference design, but still I wish I could get my hands on it.

If you're into computers, then you might know that TI is a chip manufacturer (as well as making a number of gadgets under their own brand). For example, one of the gadgets that uses TI's OMAPS processor was the Nokia N800.

In the most recent issue of EETimes, TI demoed their ebook reader as an example of the new chips that have been designed for use in ebook readers. The new chips can perform tasks that used to take up to 40 discrete components, thus reducing the footprint, production cost, and energy usuage.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. 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."
