Sipix under a microscope

The image at right is a closeup of a Sipix screen. You  should click on it and see the difference between this screen tech and E-ink. Hint: yes, that is a hexagonal grid. Okay it's not actually under a microscope, but I'd say it's close enough.

One of my readers noticed my recent post about the Luarna Avant, a 6" ereader originally made by Benq. Mario didn't have this particular device, but at one point he did have his hands on a version that is being distributed in Russia.

He took this picture, and then he shot a few more pictures (from top to bottom: K2, Kindle DXG (Pearl screen), and PER3162).

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."

  1. Just to mention that macro of Kindle DX is for new Graphite version, so it is Pearl screen witch is noticable in comparsion with older screen on Kindle 2.

  2. hi Nate, in your opinion what is the better between e-ink and sipix ?

  3. Why ? Can you suggest me links or document to know more about the difference from these 2 technologies or about the SiPix quality problems ? Thank you Nate.
