E-Ink News: Fujisu Stops Development of Color Quaderno? │Kobo will launch a new reader next year│Meebook crowdfunds new 10.3-inch product M103 in Japan

Today I would like to share with you three pieces of new news from the E-Ink world.

Japan will hold the CEATEC ( Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies ) exhibition from October 17th to 20th. It is one of the largest information technology and electronic products exhibitions in Japan. This time Yuantai Technology and its partners will also participate in the exhibition, including Fujisu. It is said that Good E-Reader sent staff to participate and report. They contacted Fujisu and brought a piece of news that surprised reader enthusiasts: Although Fujisu had already exhibited the 13.3-inch Quaderno A4 with Kaleido 3 screen in October last year , but there has been no mass production along the way. It turns out that Fujisu has decided that the Quaderno series will not develop color models, and it is not yet known whether Gen 3 will be released.

Yesterday (October 18), an application for registration ID (NOIKBN428) appeared on the US FCC, coming from Taiwan Zhenyao Technology Company. The document shows that they are manufacturing a new reader for Kobo. The details are unknown, including the size and specifications of the device. It is only confirmed that it will be equipped with Bluetooth and Wifi. Since the application stipulates that the internal and external photos and instructions of the product will be kept confidential and will not be made public until April 15 next year, it is expected that Kobo will launch this product at that time.

Meebook recently launched a reader called "M103" on the Japanese crowdfunding platform Greenfunding, equipped with a 10.3-inch E-Ink screen, 227PPI, 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. The system version is Android 11, weighs 480 grams, and is equipped with an electromagnetic pen for users to write on. What is more noteworthy is that this M103 uses a non-flat screen, a metal body and a white border on the front with a gray bottom, which looks quite wrong.
Just looking at the appearance and parameters of the product, it should be a newly developed product by Meebook, not the P10/P10 Pro that has been launched on the market earlier. The current crowdfunding price is about 60,000 yen per unit. Interested readers may wish to watch its official promotional video:

我寄望讀墨會有決心推出用13.3吋Kaleido 3閱讀器,即13.3"mooInk Pro3C。
我相信文石未來也會推出的,但就不會如讀墨和Fujisu等採用Linfiny OEM的那樣輕和薄了。
