As predicted eReaders are going to be a hot topic at the CES 2010. Out of nowhere Skiff LLC and Sprint announce the Skiff Reader at the CES 2010.
The Skiff Reader is supposedly the first eReader optimized for newspaper and magazine content. To prove it, the Skiff Reader features the largest and highest-resolution electronic-paper display yet unveiled in a consumer device, at 11.5" (measured diagonally) and a resolution of 1200 x 1600 pixels (UXGA).

Skiff Reader Based On LG Metal Foil e-Paper Debuts At CES 2010

A full touchscreen enables users to intuitively navigate and engage with the newspapers, magazines, books and other digital content they purchase through the Skiff Store, as well as personal and work documents. The device weighs just over one pound and lasts over a week of average use between charges.

The Skiff Reader is designed not just for sleekness but also for durability. It is the first consumer product to feature the next-generation of e-paper display – one based on a thin, flexible sheet of stainless-steel foil. This contrasts with the fragile glass that is the foundation of almost every electronic screen – and a primary source of vulnerability and breakage risk in the devices that incorporate them.
Skiff has worked closely with LG Display, one of the world’s leading display manufacturers and the innovator of the foil-display technology, to optimize and implement this first-of-its-kind non-glass display uniquely for the Skiff Reader.

Skiff has signed a multi-year agreement with Sprint to provide 3G connectivity for Skiff’s dedicated e-reading devices (Skiff Reader also supports Wifi) in the United States. Plans are underway to have the Skiff Reader available for purchase later this year in more than 1,000 Sprint retail locations and online. Availability, pricing, additional distribution channels and other details will be disclosed at a later date.
