Wexler had a surprisingly large booth at the IFA 2012 show, and we’ve decided that the curved screen e-reader was unusual enough to warrant our attention.
Detailed fully here
, the quasi-flexible device uses a 6-inch polymer E-Ink EPD (electronic paper display) with 16-level grayscale and a resolution of 1,024 x 768 pixels (4:3 aspect ratio).
The storage capacity is of 8 GB, which should be sufficient for storing enough books to last the one or two weeks that the battery can supposedly run on a single charge.
We should probably mention which, out of all the above, are clear advantages over other e-readers
. Obviously, the curved design is one (it makes it safer to store in a pocket). Another is the resolution (Amazon Kindle
only has 800 x 600).
The one thing that Wexler hasn’t struggled to add is touch support, and the rubberized buttons need firm presses to respond, which may or may not aggrieve users.
Finally, we still don't know when sales will begin, or for what price.
