One of Each…

The debate over whether e-ink or LCD screens are better for e-books continues. So it’s no surprise that someone has come up with a device that uses both. No, not the Nook, which has a very small LCD screen for navigation, but the eDGe, which has two similar sized screens – one colour LCD and the other greyscale e ink – targeting the textbook market. From the NYT:

Now there is a new approach that may adapt well to textbook pages: two-screen e-book readers with a traditional e-paper display on one screen and a liquid-crystal display on the other to render graphics like science animations in color.

The dual screens are linked by a central processor so that, for example, a link on the e-paper display can open on the color screen.
