Apple will take both hybrid e-paper and LCD for the next

Creativity | 2011.04.08 07:57 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Patently Apple에 따르면 애플은 차기 내놓을 아이폰5와 아이패드3에는 현재의 LCD Display에 추가로 Hybrid e-paper (e-ink) 기능을 추가하여 사용자 경험 (User Experience)을 확장하고자 한다고 합니다.


LCD는 다 아시는 그 LCD (Liquid Crystal Display; 액정 디스플레이)입니다. 그런데 Hybrid e-paper 이라는 좀 생소한 말이 나왔는데요. e-book에서 활용하는 종이 질감이 나게 해주는 그런 전자 종이를 말하는 것입니다. 아마존의 킨들 (Kindle)이 대표적인 것이지요.


그래서 애플의 생각은 일반 영화 감상 등의 그래픽 기능이 필요할 때는 LCD 디스플레이를 사용할 수 있게 한다는 것이고 e-book, 신문 기사 등의 글을 읽을 때는 Hybrid e-paper 디스플레이를 사용하게 하여 정말 책을 읽는 것과 같은 느낌을 사용자들이 받을 수 있게 하겠다는 것입니다.

Google's E-Bookstore

Now that Google launched their long-waited e-bookstore. We can see

what is going in e-book market with Amazon, Google, and others.

Google has launched its long-awaited e-bookstore, Google E-books, bringing more than 3 million books — many of them free — to any device with a web browser in the U.S.


The initiative, previously known as Google Editions, offers an alternative sales model from the dominant players in the space, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple.


Instead of purchasing e-books through a single online store to read only on compatible software (i.e. books bought from the Kindle Store can only be read on Kindle apps), Google (Google) lets consumers buy books either from its store or any other online vendor that sells books in EPUB and PDF formats, and read them on any device with a web browser.


This allows independent booksellers with loyal customer bases to advertise and sell Google e-books via their own venues and take an (as of yet undisclosed) cut of the revenue, an opportunity previously denied to them. It also allows consumers to choose whom to purchase their books from on Google’s platform, just as consumers can choose between third-party sellers on Amazon. Google E-books is also launching with an affiliates program in place.


It’s a smart move on Google’s end, as the company will have potentially thousands of booksellers and affiliates marketing on behalf of its service.

In addition to a Google Web Reader application, users will be able to read Google e-books on apps for Android (Android), iPhone and iPad devices. Reading content will automatically sync across devices, so if you begin reading in the morning in the iPad, you’ll be able to pick up where you left off on your iPhone or Android device on the subway, and again on your office computer during your lunch break.


Nearly 4,000 publishers will be providing content through Google E-books at launch, including all of the major players: Random House, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, etc.
