Although Amazon Kindle is still the king of the jungle, it is not confident enough to retain the title for too long. Another predator enters it’s domain, this time the world leader in consumer electronics, LG. But what you see above is not just a conventional eBook reader. The device is super-efficient when it comes to battery life. Just keep it under the sun for about 4-5 hours and you get an additional 1 day worth of power. LG’s thin-film solar cell energy conversion efficiency is about 10% which the company promises to inrease to 14% by 2012.
So book lovers…consider this LG option a serious contender to the Kindle, especially considering LG’s tremendous presence in India and China which could prove to be fatal for Amazon.
