Skiff Reader – the bendy trendy e-book reader


I’m not totally convinced by e-book readers, I have the feeling that long term they could go the way of the dedicated satellite navigation device, i.e. subsumed by the relentless march of the do everything smartphone. But if I were to desire one of these tools it would probably be something like this Skiff Reader.  An 11.5 inch flexible metal foil touchscreen, one week battery life, 3G and WiFi enabled, 4 GB memory and an SD memory card slot and internal speaker. What’s not to like? No price yet, due out later this year.


 The Skiff Reader is designed not just for sleekness but also for durability. It is the first consumer product to feature the next-generation of e-paper display – one based on a thin, flexible sheet of stainless-steel foil. This contrasts with the fragile glass that is the foundation of almost every electronic screen – and a primary source of vulnerability and breakage risk in the devices that incorporate them.

  • Nigel – great story on the Skiff reader. As you suggested, I'm adding a comment on your piece.

    The Skiff Reader device is trendy as you suggest but it is not bendy. What is bendy is the “Metal Foil” e-Paper Technology from LG Display that is included in the Skiff Reader. This enhances the durability by eliminating the fragility of a glass display.

    Check out our press release here, which has more details.

    Thanks for following the news of the Skiff Reader and we'll keep you posted!
