LG Philips 14-inch eBook

A mass migration to eBooks has generally been impractical with current technology. Novels and other forms of writing that rarely change are less expensive to publish in traditional form; newspapers and journals, which change often, need larger digital paper sizes than current technology can deliver. LG Philips has helped remove one of those barriers with the announcement that it can now produce 14-inch eBook sheets. Capable of a WXGA resolution (approximately 1280x800), these flexible sheets would be large enough to display enough text at once that electronic newspapers would become an option. The response time is still too slow to allow for video, but when LG Philips' design leaves the prototype phase it may signal a genuine shift in how we read away from the computer.
