Russian developer Wexler recently debuted the Flex ONE, the first e-reader in the world to use LG’s Electronic Paper Display (EPD) technology. The end result is a 0.16-inch (4mm) thin, 3.9oz (110g) reader with a body capable of physically bending to a fixed degree. The 6-inch screen can display electronic documents and publications at 1024 x 768 pixels, making the monochromatic reader ideal for reading graphics-heavy material.
Due to its limited size, the Flex ONE does not have wireless capabilities, nor does it have touchscreen support. Navigation is instead made with buttons located below the screen, on the portion of the device that does not bend. The 900 mAh Li-ion battery also only has up to 4 weeks’ worth of power through uninterrupted use. Wexler’s device does, however, feature an impressive 8GB internal memory, allowing users to carry along sizeable libraries on the gadget. Compatible formats include .txt, .html, .doc, .chm, .epub, and .pdf, among several others.
