Thinnest E-Reader Skiff Uses Next Generation E-Paper Technology

Talking about all shapes and sizes of electronic readers, Engadget got a scoop on a new e-reader that is known as Skiff.  It has bigger screen than most e-readers, and from one of the pictures of Skiff from Engadget, it looks like Skiff can be bent (using the next generation of e-paper display made of stainless-steel foil – source) .  Although Skiff is having 4GB of storage, only 3GB can be used for storing contents.  Sprint will provide Skiff with 3G capability, but the cost for 3G and the e-reader itself are not yet known.  From the screenshots of Skiff, it does provide excellent look for displaying newspaper contents.  It seems Skiff is having a same drawback as all other e-readers on the market, because it’s only displaying contents in black and white color.  Another cool thing about Skiff is that it’s the thinnest e-reader on the market (for now).  All e-readers nowadays are touchscreen capable, and so obviously Skiff is also touchscreen capable.
