Onyx to use Neonode zForce touchscreen on their next e-reader

Neonode signed up a 5th ebook reader maker today, and I'd say that they are are well on their way to controlling a solid chunk of the touchscreen market.

Neonode  and Onyx have agreed to a multi-year license agreement for the zForce  touchscreen tech. This touchscreen, which is already being used in the Sony Readers, Nook Touch, and the new Kobo Touch, is based on IR sensors. It offers a touchscreen sensor without requiring a touchpanel in front of the screen (like resistive or capacitive) or behind the screen (Wacom).

Onyx plan to have their first zForce equipped ebook reader on the market in Europe this fall.

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."
