Chinese Market to See Qualcomm’s Mirasol Display Technology

A new e-reader is on its way to China thanks to Qualcomm and Hanvon. The Hanvon C-18 e-reader boasts itself to be the thinnest and lightest e-reader on the market.  CEO Dr. Peter Jacobs believes this new Mirasol Display Technology and the Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 (single core 1ghz) will deliver a premium reading experience, utilizing a color touch screen with “weeks of reading under typical usage.”  Be sure to read the fine print at the bottom where it says the battery life estimate is based on 30minutes of reading per day.

“Hanvon has chosen mirasol displays as the enabling technology that will best place the full color potential of their vast content library into the hands of their customers,” said Clarence Chui, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm MEMS Technologies, Inc. “This Hanvon e-reader validates customers’ evolving expectation of color as part of their e-reading experience and mirasol displays deliver an unparalleled experience.”

The Hanvon C18 e-reader includes access to tens of thousands of e-books, more than 100 Chinese newspapers and more than 300 magazines, 90 percent of which offer full-color digital editions. Hanvon’s continuing collaboration with more than 300 publishers ensures a deep and diverse stream of digital content for consumers. Additionally, the device features Hanvon’s patented handwriting recognition technology – Hanvon Input – to further enhance the user experience.
