BenQ just demoed an e-reader equipped with a solar panel

Digitimes are reporting that BenQ showed off a new ereader prototype at their 2010 Global Distributors' Meeting yesterday. The prototype is based on their latest ereader, the K60. They added a solar panel built into the cover which can recharge the ereader without the need to plug it in.

It should be launched in 2011.

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."
