BenQ bets on color eReader over tablet

BenQ says no to iPad clone

I figured once the iPad launched and users started to buy the thing that the manufactures of computers and electronics would decide whether to move forward with their own tablets. I also think that makers of eReaders will have either to get much cheaper with their offering or add in new features to compete with the likes of the iPad.




PC World reports that BenQ has decided to focus on color screen eReaders rather than making a tablet like the iPad. BenQ expects to have its color eReader on the market this year.


The benefits according to BenQ of its screen tech on an eReader over the LCD of the iPad are less eye fatigue and more battery life. However, an eye doctor says eyestrain has more to do with light around the display rather than the screen type.
