1. FLEPia the full color eBook reader

I'm working on some research about eBooks for a BookFinder.com info page that we will be posting later on to help you guys muddle your way though all the different readers and file types.  While doing this I came across a neat video that I thought you might want to see. 

It's for the FLEPia, Fujitsu's new full color eReader that was launched last month in Japan.  It seems to have some pretty major drawbacks, such as the $1000 price tag and the 1.8-8 second page load times.  If you can get past the ultra cheesy music, monotone dialogue and glaring camera work the device itself is a pretty monster step in the right direction for eReaders.

2. The first color ebook reader is available for purchase–at $1000

The first color ebook reader is now available for consumers in Japan–FLEPia by Fujitsu–at a $1000 price tag. That’s too much for most people in the market for an ebook, but eventually the technology will get cheaper and the general public will be able to afford it.

Personally, I love the idea of having some color–being able to see book covers in color, and hopefully being able to read comics and manga in color on an e-ink ebook reader. How cool is that? But it sure won’t be in my budget until it comes down a lot.

How about you? Would color entice you to get an ebook reader if the price was right?
