There's a particular hardware company that have demonstrated that they like to experiment and they like to push into new markets. They've released a couple new ereaders in the past 6 months - and those ereaders use 2 different screen technologies. They've also release a couple unusual tablet designs recently. This is also the company that jump-started the netbook market.
I'm talking about Asus.
I don't have any proof, but you have to admit that it makes some sense. I think that if it were at all possible, Asus would be working on a Mirasol ereader. But are they?
Who would you propose as a hardware partner? I know everyone is going to suggest Amazon, which is the obvious answer. Does anyone have a new suggestion?
P.S. Speaking of Pocketbook, they aren't listed as an exhibitor. If they were then I would change my mind about the possibility of an announcement. In fact, if I see anyone from Pocketbook, I'm going to wheedle the time of the press conference out of them and post that detail immediately.
