But e-ink fans looking forward to the full-color, mulittouch mega-Kindle will have to wait a while longer; this week, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos told shareholders that a color Kindle was still “some ways out,” adding, “I’ve seen some stuff in the laboratory, but it’s not quite ready for prime-time production.” More

Freescale’s i.MX508 Chip Will Make E-Ink Readers Way Cheaper and Turn Pages 4X Faster [Guts]

The silicon inside 90 percent of ereaders out there is made by Freescale, and their new chip, the i.MX508 —based on a ARM Cortex A8 ( sorta like the iPad !)—will make them cheaper, and page turns 4x faster. The chip’s a custom SoC that integrates the functions from multiple chips into one—specifically, the E-Ink hardware display controller—along with that Cortex A8, which gives the readers enough juice to turn pages in half a second, versus the two seconds that’s typical now. As the first chip expressly designed for ereaders, it also strips out unnecessary features, so the net result for the ereader is that it’s $30 cheaper a unit. Freescale wagers that with the cost savings, it could drive ereaders to under $150 by the end of the year
