Worlds first color e-paper mobile terminal FLEPia featuring color e-paper launched in Japan
Fujitsu today announced the start of consumer sales in Japan of the world’s first color e-paper mobile terminal, FLEPia. Developed by Fujitsu Frontech and Fujitsu Laboratories, FLEPia is the first ever mobile information terminal to feature color electronic paper (color e-paper). In addition to being lightweight and thin, the color e-paper mobile terminal features an easy-to-view 8-inch display screen capable of showing up to 260,000 colors in high-definition, in addition to being equipped with Bluetooth and high-speed wireless LAN.
Fujitsu FLEPia is also power-efficient, enabling up to 40 hours of continuous battery operation when fully charged, and does not require power for continuous display of a screen image, consuming power only during re-draw.
Featuring significant storage capabilities, when used with a 4GB SD card, the color e-paper terminal can store the equivalent of 5,000 conventional paper-based books when each book is 300 pages long at 600KB per book, thus being environmentally friendly. In Japan, FLEPia can now be easily ordered from Fujitsu Frontech’s online store. As the only color e-paper mobile terminal commercially available, Fujitsu FLEPia offers a convenient, paper-free and eco-conscious enriched innovative mobile reading experience to users.
