E Ink unwraps colour e-paper reader

Triton to sink tablets?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

E Ink has demo'd Triton - its technology to enable colour e-book readers.

Triton is capable of presenting "thousands of colours", E Ink said, and it claimed they would be viewable in sunlight. Like other E Ink e-paper technologies, Triton is "low power" - not that E Ink provided figures, mind.

E Ink showed Triton off at the Flat Panel Display show in Japan, as well as a colour e-book reader from Chinese hardware maker Hanvon.

Even so, E Ink marketing chief Lawrence Schwartz said that the company didn't believe Triton was an e-book reader component so much as a technology that will enable e-newspapers. Of course, there aren't going to be separate e-newspaper, e-magazine and e-book devices - they'll all become one, 5, 7 or 10in tablet.

No word yet on when Triton will be available in readers sold over here - or what price premium it will add to the likes of Amazon's Kindle and Sony's Reader. ®
