Epson and E Ink announced the joint development of a 9.7-inch 300-dpi electronic paper device with a resolution way higher than that of existing e-readers.
The 300-dpi display will support 2,400 x 1,650 pixels, promising to deliver “razor-sharp text and images”, compared with the 160 dpi and 600 x 800 resolution of existing readers such as Barnes & Noble’s Nook and the Amazon Kindle. And they say that, despite the higher resolution, readers will be able to turn pages faster than on existing devices.
E Ink will manufacture, sell and support the newly developed 300-dpi ePaper displays. Epson will manufacture, sell and support a high-resolution, high-speed display controller platform optimized for controlling E Ink’s high-resolution display.
