E Ink's Fina Module Promises Lighter E-readers

E Ink today announced the upcoming release of E Ink Fina, a new thin and lightweight electronic paper display (EPD) technology.

Fina will be the first EPD that will go into mass production for small to large format digital paper products based on a thin glass Thin Film Transistor (TFT) technology. In conjunction, today PocketBook also announced PocketBook CAD Reader - the first Fina ePaper Android device designed specifically for displaying drawings generated with Autocad from Autodesk.

Fina is a glass based TFT technology that uses a very thin glass substrate to deliver products that are much lighter and thinner than what is possible with standard LCD displays. The company says that Fina displays weigh less than 50% of the weight of an equivalent glass based TFT and are less than 50% of the thickness as well. A 13.3" Fina display module, installed in the Pocket CAD Reader, weighs approximately 60 grams.

PocketBook CAD Reader uses an 1GHz dual-core CPU running Android 4.0.4 with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB. With built-in Wi-Fi and 3G modules, large 8000 mAh battery and pre-installed CAD-applications it is tailored to the needs of the mobile user. The built-in touch screen and precise Wacom digitizer support both touch and a stylus for fine detail work.



In addition to being thin and light, Fina EPDs deliver the same energy efficiency and daylight readability of all E Ink displays.
