A difference between ereader and tablet screen (infographic)
With the arrival of Kindle Fire, I realized that still many people confuse e-readers with tablets. When I’d heard about “Kindle color e-ink tablet”, I decided to clarify the things with a simple visualization, shown below.
E-reader is a device devoted to reading. Most e-readers have electronic ink screens. Such screens don’t need an internal light to display image. There are not color e-ink devices on the market yet. If the device is called “e-reader” and has a color screen, that means that the screen is not e-ink.
Tablet is a multi-purpose device with a color LCD screen. LCD screen needs internal light to produce the image. This source of light is most often not enough when we use the tablet in bright sunlight – the screen looks dark.
