20. Flexible ebooks - Readius

There is more to life than ebooks. And while I love my Blackberry, reading a very long email is painful on a small screen. Please give me paper any time. However, given the mentions of Kindle on this blog, it seems appropriate to also review the alternatives (and the future).

The Readius is billed as the world's first pocket ebook. The picture does not show how big the screen is (it fits in the palm of your hand). To me the exciting part is that the screen folds up inside the device.

So we can expect to see bigger flexible screens in the future, with the folder size of a computer being small enough to fit into a pocket (as deep as the keyboard - around 10 cms or 4 inches), but the screen can fold out to conventional sizes.
