E-ink and what does it mean?
E-ink is electronic ink which transforms an e-reader into a book. In fact with E-ink technology, readers can actually feel as if they were reading a paperback. The only disadvantage is that it is all in black and white. Anyway who has heard of color text in books? Amazon Kindle was one of the very first which had E-ink display. Kindle reads like real paper and therefore there is no glare. Because of this you can read on a Kindle even in bright sunlight unlike a LCD screen.
