My sources are telling me that Hanvon have announced that they’re planning to release a new ereader with a color E-ink screen in November. I’d rate this as somewhat more than a rumor but less than a certainty.
This is rather interesting, though. I’d pegged Hanvon as one of the likely Mirasol partners. If they’re working with E-ink, then wouldn’t it suggest they they aren’t working with Qualcomm?
Then again, they could be working on both new screen technologies with the plan to release whichever was ready first.
