Fujistu FLEPia readers

Another company making news with e-books is Fujitsu, who who will be displaying its FLEPia e-book readers at the Fujitsu Forum in May. Said to be the first commercial products using flexible color e-paper, the FLEPias are less than half an inch thick, and are made for A4 (8x11) and A5 (6x9) sizes, with screen resolutions of 768x1024. Loading files can be done through one of three methods: USB 2.0, 802.11b/g wireless, or a provided SD slot. Lithium-polymer batteries should provide 50 hours of use. Only corporations and rich individuals, however, will likely be able to afford a FLEPia: according to Gizmodo, the A5 size should cost $12,685, and the A4 size several thousand more at $21,137.
