Gvido is a sheet music reader based on a pair of 13.3″ Mobius E-ink displays. it was announced on Friday, and according to the press release it was being shown off at a music industry conference in Cannes (said conference ended on Monday – today).
Weighing in at 650 grams, the Gvido measures 48 cm by 31 cm when unfolded. It has a Wacom touchscreen, Wifi, Bluetooth, and supports PDFs. You can use the Wacom stylus to annotate the PDF, and even save the notes and bookmarks for future use.
