E-reader firm PocketBook has introduced and launched the InkPad Coloration, a 7.8-inch gadget that makes use of E Ink’s newest colour expertise. PocketBook tells The Verge that it’s the primary gadget with a brand new Kaleido panel to be accessible within the US and Europe.
In keeping with the corporate, the brand new model of Kaleido has a distinct colour filter sample that gives higher distinction and colour saturation than the primary Kaleido, which is itself fairly new expertise. PocketBook additionally says that the display refresh fee has been improved in software program.
The specs of the brand new Kaleido panel are in any other case just like the earlier era, with 300-dpi decision for monochrome content material and 100 dpi when displaying colours.

Just a few months in the past I reviewed the PocketBook Color, which was one of many first Kaleido e-readers in the marketplace wherever on the planet. I used to be typically impressed with the display expertise, however discovered the 6-inch panel too small to be sensible to be used circumstances like magazines and comedian books. A bigger, improved show may make the InkPad Coloration a way more helpful gadget — hopefully we will see for ourselves quickly.
