Koobe announces that its new e-reader Jin Yong Reader will be equipped with Qualcomm’s Mirasol Displays
Qualcomm has been working on technology that will be adopted universally for some time now. And it seems to have succeeded on that end. The Taiwanese company Koobe has announced its new e-reader, known as the Jin Yong Reader. This is the fourth device in the last 10 weeks to announce that it will be equipped with Qualcomm’s Mirasol Display technology. This e-reader is very similar in style and technology to its contemporaries like Bambook Sunflower from China’s Shanda Networking Co. and the Kyobo eReader from South Korea’s Kyobo Book Centre. The San Diego company Qualcomm hopes that by introducing this technology in a market like Taiwan, where so many other gadgets are manufactured, they will be able to generate a healthy interest in the Mirasol Display. Basically, Mirasol displays eliminate the need for backlights by reflecting light between two conductive plates. This means that the device will need much lesser battery power to operate, and might even last for weeks without recharging it.
