New 'Fina' e-Ink display to be used in 13.3-inch PocketBook CAD Reader

updated 10:56 pm EST, Mon December 2, 2013

Dual-core CAD Reader first mobile device developed for Autocad file viewing

Digital signage and display company E Ink Holdings today announced the upcoming release of E Ink Fina, a new thin and lightweight electronic paper display (EPD) technology. Fina will be the first EPD that will go into mass production for small to large format digital paper products based on a thin glass Thin Film Transistor (TFT) technology. In conjunction, today PocketBook also announced PocketBook CAD Reader -- the first Fina ePaper Android device designed specifically for displaying drawings generated with AutoCAD from Autodesk.

Fina is a glass-based TFT technology that uses a very thin glass substrate to deliver products that are much lighter and thinner than what is possible with standard LCD displays. Fina displays weigh less than 50 percent of the weight of an equivalent glass-based TFT and are less than 50 percent of the thickness as well. A 13.3-inch Fina display module, installed in the Pocket CAD Reader, weighs approximately 60 grams (two ounces).

PocketBook CAD Reader uses a 1GHz dual-core CPU running Android 4.0.4 with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The device boasts built-in Wi-Fi and 3G modules, a 8000mAh battery and pre-installed CAD applications that can hold the plans for up to 200 construction projects, which can be edited and shared through the collaboration workspace. The built-in touch screen and Wacom digitizer support both touch and a stylus for fine detail work.

Pricing is not yet available for the PocketBook CAD Reader.
