E-readers Get A Boost At 2010 CESJanuary 11th, 2010 - 8:03 pm ICT by GD

Jan 11, (THAINDIAN NEWS) If you like reading and have the dough, you probably already own an e-reader (given that you don’t mind substituting a hard copy for a soft one). The last decade saw a whole new editions of e-readers with Amazon’s kindle only providing the best in the lot. These e-book readers made there own stand during the 2010 CES. For those unaware, the CES is the international consumer electronic show which is held each year in Las Vegas during January. Right on cue, this years best CES products are said to have included HDTVs slick new e-readers.
The CES has been hot on announcing touchscreen devices for quite some time now. This time, a lot of manufacturers including Dell, HP, Lenovo, Sony and Archos went on to release new slate computers at the CES and the Que e-reader was given a release date by Plastic Logic. The tablets and the e-readers may be two different products but their target consumer may turn out to be the same. This is given to the fact that their major function is to display documents with as less user interaction as possible.
The users of e-readers do have an added advantage that comes in the form of ‘e-link displays’. For those who are still in the dark, e-link displays are easy on the eyes than their computer counterparts. Less fatigue, less pressure on the eyes. Also, recharging is quite an infrequent instance where e-readers are concerned. All this on top of the fact that they are much lighter than the computers/tablets. You may however, like to go for a tablet if you could ignore the LED screens and the bad battery life.
