Microbook - Description, mk 1
MicroBook, a simple ebook reader
A device made for a single purpose - read books, anywhere.
Fully open-source, no music player, no 100500 formats support, no internet browsing/3G/Wifi, no bells, no whistles - only book reading.
The books are stored on an microsd card, power comes from the sun.
The battery appears to last for weeks with backlight on, and months with it off.
And since it's open-source, you can always trade the thinness for a bigger battery. :)
Now with an e-ink screen: Mk. 2
