Best is yet to come Fujitsu E-reader

Fujitsu's e-reader is based on "FLEPia" technology from Fujitsu Frontera that incorporates the color screen with a wireless data management system. And that screen is about as large as the average magazine page--making it far more suitable than the Amazon device for browsing magazine-style info or even e-newspapers. That's certainly why Mainichi Newspapers Co. Ltd. is involved in the trial of the e-papers currently underway in a Tokyo restaurant to see how the public accepts it.
The Termina Kinshicho Fujiya restaurant has a dedicated "BB Mobile Point" wireless LAN installed to serve content to the e-readers--this includes diverse stuff from newspapers to adverts to train timetables and weather reports.
Hardware-wise the e-reader is pretty sleek--it's got a narrow bezel which makes the Kindle 2's huge one look positively ugly, and still manages to be a relatively narrow 12mm deep. It also ditches the keyboard of the Kindle since it's got a touch-sensitive screen. Inside there's Wi-Fi and USB 2 for connectivity, an SD slot for memory expansion, stereo speakers, and the entire Windows CE5. And the device can go for 50 hours use on a single charge.
