Freescale can get 8 frames per second with E-ink

Freescale can get 8 frames per second with E-ink Conferences & Trade shows `Charbax shot this video at the Freescale suite the other day. (It's off site, so I haven't had a chance to make iy over there with my camera).

This demo unit is using a Pearl screen and is running on an i.MX508 CPU which was designed specifically for ereaders and incorporates a Cortex A8 800MHz processor and E Ink display controller.

Just don't ask them what the power requirements are. This unit probably draws more power than a comparable LCD.

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."
