pocketbook cad readerE Ink has come up with some pretty interesting displays in the past, and this time around, we have a new kind of screen technology from the folks over at E Ink that they call Fina. Fina will rely on technology which makes use of an extremely thin glass substrate which will supposedly end up eventually in displays that measure less than 50% where thickness and weight are concerned, especially when one compares it to “an equivalent glass-based TFT.”

In the press release (which you can read by following the link below), the Fina would be ideal for implementation in the PocketBook CAD Reader. This PocketBook CAD Reader happens to be a spanking new 13.3-inch device, which also happens to be the very first device that appears with Fina technology underneath the hood. Apart from that, the PocketBook CAD Reader will also arrive with a dual-core 1GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice. It does not seem as though the PocketBook CAD Reader will make its way to formal sales channels anytime soon, since the main reason of its existence would be to display drawings from Autocad. After all, it has been declared to see action on construction sites instead of in everyday situations. [Press Release]
