"This gives hardware developers access to the same technology
used in the Kindle DX, allowing them to create their own e-book
devices with similar capabilities. The display has a resolution of
150 pixels per inch and can display multiple shades of gray. Text
can be read in a dark room or in direct sunlight and at any angle.
Once set, it draws no energy from the device, with an electric
current needed only when a 'page' is turned.
"The third-generation developer kit has a graphical electronic
paper display with pen input. Aside from this display module, the
kit also includes a Linux x86 operating environment, E Ink API
software for Broadsheet, various sample images, open source
software drivers and applications that include but are not limited
to support for MMC cards, Bluetooth and USB."
