Good color — or the ability to read anywhere, even outdoors? That has long been the choice for those seeking to get their hands on e-readers.
But soon, those who want to carry their books around in electronic form may not have to choose. The company that makes the display for Amazon.com’s Kindle says it will soon start selling screens that show colors — not just the shades of gray users have had until now. E Ink says the new technology can show thousands of colors, along with 16 shades of gray. Amazon did not immediately respond to inquiries yesterday on whether all this means that means a color Kindle is coming.
