H-P Develops Prototype E-book

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 25, 2003

From BBC News: “Researchers at Hewlett Packard have developed a prototype electronic book which can hold a whole library on a device no bigger than a paperback. The brushed metal device is about one centimetre thick and looks like an oversized handheld computer. The technological tome is dominated by a screen and a series of touch sensitive strips that allow the reader to navigate through the book. E-books are loaded on to the device using a standard USB port on a computer.”
