E-ink just posted their income for September. The total revenue was NT$2,118.88, which is up about a 3rd from August and up 42% from last September.
EIH's consolidated revenues totaled NT$2.12 billion (US$68.97 million) in September. Consolidated revenues for the third quarter totaled NT$5.27 billion, up about 2% compared to the second quarter. Consolidated revenues for the first three quarters of 2010 were NT$15.45 billion, increasing 39.08% on year.
E-ink had been having a flat year, but now their sales have picked up. I wonder who is buying the screens? I don't think it was Sony or Amazon that caused this increase. They would have been buying the screens before September (in order to get the devices made in time).
We will probably be seeing a couple new ereaders on the market in the next few months.
