The first color ebook reader is now available for consumers in Japan–FLEPia by Fujitsu–at a $1000 price tag. That’s too much for most people in the market for an ebook, but eventually the technology will get cheaper and the general public will be able to afford it.
Personally, I love the idea of having some color–being able to see book covers in color, and hopefully being able to read comics and manga in color on an e-ink ebook reader. How cool is that? But it sure won’t be in my budget until it comes down a lot.
How about you? Would color entice you to get an ebook reader if the price was right?
