It can also render the screen animations and icons of an operating system. After all, you really only want to read on it — not watch videos.
One reason is health-related. It seems that glowing screens can cause insomnia and eye damage. These blue light filter apps for Android will help you get a better night's sleep, even when using your device at night. On top of that, a display technology capable of rendering color and video can also run the Android operating system. On top of that, it requires fewer materials in order to produce it. LCD requires a polarizing layer, a reflecting layer, three color layers, and more.

E Ink also requires several layers. CLEARink simplifies the production process down to three layers. In theory, it would cost less to manufacture than even LCD which is already the cheapest screen for manufacturers to produce. As of , no other e-paper display offers full motion video and color. However, in , E Ink Holdings Inc. Unlike smartphones and tablets, e-readers heavily rely on their system-on-a-chip Jargon Buster: The Guide to Understanding Mobile Processors Jargon Buster: The Guide to Understanding Mobile Processors In this guide, we'll cut through the jargon to explain what you need to know about smartphone processors.
Read More SoC for page refreshes. The screen technology alone is only half the equation for building a better e-reader. Two issues with E Ink are jarring screen transitions and an inability to render video.
In short, it lacks the fluidity of the Liquid Crystal Display LCD found in almost all televisions and some smartphones. The problem is that it cannot fluidly display animated images without something called a waveform.
Due to a technical limitation of the current generation of hardware, a separate waveform must be written for each application. For example, watching video would require a separate waveform from reading a book. The additional programming overhead required of a waveform greatly slows down the development and release of e-readers.
Fortunately, the company responsible for e-reader processors Freescale came up with a novel solution. MX 7 comes into the spotlight. The i. MX 7 no longer requires individual waveforms for each application. Instead, the i. MX 7 employs hardware features to efficiently draw images. This means lower power consumption and lightning fast screen refreshes. Image Credit: NXP. Despite some serious delays, the i.

As you can see from the video below, both screen animation and text fluidly move at a speed approaching an LCD panel:. If you absolutely must purchase an e-reader immediately, I recommend a stop-gap solution — something inexpensive to tide you over until CLEARink or the i. MX 7 releases. One option comes to mind: the Kindle Paperwhite.
The Kindle Paperwhite offers pretty much identical hardware to the latest version, at a killer price. On the downside, it suffers from an inability to read. EPUB files is a deal-breaker.

Ensure Your Kindle Firmware Is Updated
I guess the writer of this article got paid by Clearink The issue is that the article hasn't been updated. ClearInk got 25 million in funding from Lenovo.
Lenovo is also making their panels. Just recently they added another manufacturing partner. I don't know if that came to pass but the manufacturers who did come to the table are real. Lenovo and the other LCD manufacturer both issued press releases on the manufacturing partnership.
Turn Off the Radios
ClearInk has some new reference models coming out. My guess is that they'll be displayed at CES in a few weeks. Also their first product should be reaching the Chinese educational market soon, if there haven't been any manufacturing delays. This was a cool article. I've sort of fallen down the rabbit hole on this whole E-reader thing since I saw that the new Oasis would be water resistant. I'm currently serving in a gov organization in a developing country for two years and I brought a kindle fire, which is not water resistant and has been left behind in my house a lot more than I would have liked due to this reason.
Regardless, I love it. But it kills my eyes and the battery is terrible. I've started to budget what I will pay for my next E-reader and when I saw the new Oasis I thought that my problems had been solved!!!
