The folks over at Netronix are currently showcasing a slew of new designs when it comes to eReaders which will also include an interesting prototype. This particular prototype will sport a 6.8” E Ink display, where it runs on Android-based software while boasting support for a Wacom digital pen to work alongside it. Just in case you were wondering why does the name Wacom sound so familiar, that is because this is the company that has rolled out its fair share of digitizer tablets in the past – complete with its very own stylus, making it quite the expert in such a “department”.
Netronix hails from Taiwan, and despite the relative obscurity of the company, they happen to be the one behind the design and manufacturing of various devices, the Kobo eReader included. As for its latest prototype 6.8” model, it will sport a resolution count of 1,440 x 1,080 pixels, powered by a Freescale i.MX6 Solo Lite ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and has software which is based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
It remains to be seen whether Netronix intends to roll out a device under the name of its partners, but we could certainly make do with an eReader device that offers support for pressure-sensitive digital pen input. This definitely comes in handy if you need to scribble some notes right there and then before you lose your train of thought.
