There are two disadvantages e-readers have: slow refresh rate of the display, and a single-minded purpose. How is Google going to deal with it?
This ebook was designed to ensure superior refresh rate, and will also allow users to connect a keyboard or a mouse to run other apps.
The device will have an accelerometer. One of the screens will be configured to reflect ambient light to display an image.
