Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"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."
