Amazon’s next Kindle could feature front lit E-Ink display

The next generation Kindle e-reader may be equipped with a front-lit screen, according to latest reports.

TechCrunch reports that a new Kindle that will have a front-lit E Ink display is in the works.

Devin Coldewey of TechCrunch claims to have seen a version of the Amazon Kindle with such a screen and wrote about his first-hand experience with the handset:

“The device I saw was crudely camouflaged in a sort of cardboard enclosure, but the screen was clearly visible. With a tap, a slider popped up on the screen, and as it was dragged to the right, the screen lit up evenly with a rather cool light. In the dark, it was plainly noticeable as a glow, and in uneven light — say, shade or a shuttered room — the slight illumination made the screen much more readable. At full blast it was definitely projecting some light (technically speaking it was reflecting it), but it was still a soft glow and not the harsh flashlight of a backlit LCD.”

Coldewey also writes that Amazon has been considering adding glowing screens to its Kindles for some time now since it has bought a company called Oy Modilis that specializes in the tech in 2010.

The technology consists of a layer of material laminated atop the E Ink display that is lit very evenly and softly.

In addition, a new Kindle with a front-lit e-ink display wouldn’t use much power, providing longer battery life that could be counted in months, not hours, as is the case with Amazon’s current models.
