to be honest I'd rather have a device that opens on a double screen like a big nintendo DS. Taking such a device to the beach would require a solid surface to rest the device on. One screen for commands ( the one for ebooks ) and one for display. A folding design that allows to make it stand upright.
Quick, patent your idea! Then you can sue everyone who makes a double-sided tablet and make millions without doing anything. American IP laws FTW!!! Deal

They've been selling those on woot for awhile now...

I think that would be better than the flip design the article talks about...hopefully we'll know more next week.

I dunno, I kind of like this idea. If I read a lot, and if I was outside enough. I guess there's a lot of ifs there...

Well, one of the few complaints I have about my Kindle Fire is that the screen isn't as good for reading books as the e-reader "e-ink" screens of the other models, so I can see the attraction of this at least, but I need to see more to be sold on the idea.

Even as a kindle nut, I can't see buying one of those...

I bought an earlier version of this concept when they closed them out on Woot, the Entourage Pocket Edge. Nice toy, but not really practical. It would be a lot more useful though with newer hardware, especially if they could get it much thinner. Books are just much nicer to read on e-ink, in my opinion.

Microsoft patented this a few months ago, too.
eInk on one side, LCD on the other. Both have their purposes, and one doesn't need to be touch so it can be behind a more resistant material.

Still not sold on it.

Double sided, so I can get my fingerprints all over the bottom screen, or some sort of cover I need to keep flipping open and close?
