Dasung runs out of its 13.3" E Ink monitor, reading its next-gen Bluetooth powered one

Jan 21, 2017

Dasung launched the Paperlike - a 13.3" 1600x1200 USB E Ink monitor back in 2015, and it started shipping the displays last month (for $1,049) on Amazon. The company now reports that it is sold out completely - after shipping to customers from 50 countries in the past year.

According to the GoodEReader, Dasung is unlikely to produce more such displays as it is readying on a next-generation 13.3" e-reader / monitor that will function as a secondary display via Bluetooth. The resolution of the new device will be 2200x1650 (207 PPI). Dasung says it will be powered by either Android or Windows 10.

Invoxia's Triby hands on review

Dec 12, 2016

The Triby is Invoxia’s new connected speaker. It can play music from your cell phone (or connect to music apps like spotify), make in-group VoIP calls and send messages, on top of being the first non-Amazon device to take advantage of the Alexa Voice Service. The Triby includes a 2.9” active-matrix (296x128, 112 PPI) E Ink panel, and the company was kind enough to send a review unit to E-Ink-Info.

The Triby is a great looking device, with a fun design that can be defined as retro-chic. It actually reminded me of an old-school kitchen radio - which it sort of is, but with a modern twist. The Triby has physical buttons for options like volume control, contact/radio station selection and an Alexa button. A nice touch was a yellow flag that pops out the side of the device to signal receiving a message. After someone reads the message, they can push the flag back in and the sender will get a notification that their message was read.
