This is awesome. Check out this sunlight readable Android phone with a 1-week battery life (not 1-month as said in the video). It's E Ink! E Ink Android smartphone prototype! As you can see in my half-hour long interview with E Ink at IFA last month (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajqiG_...), E Ink is preparing their smartphone-sized plastics based unbreakable screens to be used on the back of smartphones (instead of the basic plastic or metallic backside of your smartphone today). Here's an awesome-looking sub-100gr (maybe it's only 70 grams! I'm getting a weight confirmation imminently, check back) E Ink smartphone. Check it out, the UI is usable on this E Ink phone even though the Android UI used is optimized for LCD, it doesn't take much for Google and others to re-optimize Android for E Ink use! Something to do with requiring the least possible UI refreshes to add/change on-screen info. The battery life is roughly ONE WEEK not one month as is said at the end of the video. I guess it depends how much you refresh infos, load data and make phone calls with it, though the screen basically always stays on, potentially always displaying relevant info all the time. It's running on an ARM Cortex-A5 processor, maybe the Qualcomm MSM7227A, to be confirmed. This video was filmed at the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair http://www.hktdc.com/fair/hkelectroni...
