I don't know if this is exact enough, but based on a combination of my own manual measurements and specifications listed in the user guide (warning links to pdf directly): Screen resolution is 600(w) x 800(h) pixels Screen measurements (approx, done myself) are 92(w) x 122(h) mm Using this calculator, that gives us a dpi of approx 44. Approx measurement of ...

Their intention is to offer a low cost device that can be charged via solar power and used primarily for the consumption of newspapers.

E-ink displays have to be mounted on a surface. In this case I assume that was done on the glass. This keeps the E-ink nice and flat (good for equal visibility of all pixels) and for extra reflectiveness of ambient light, if the glass is part of a mirror (as it seems to be). The display is actually a thin film transistor array and my guess is that if the ...

Getting older I started to have trouble reading, from my personal experience with a Sony PRS-700 (side lit), SONY PRS-T1 (no internal light) and Book Een Oddesey (front lit), I have to say that the lighting on the BookEen makes all of the differences being able to read comfortably. The BookEen also has a slightly higher resolution, at a similar screen size, ...

I would suggest going with an iPad with Retina Display not because: Its a bigger screen At the current time, better resolution than a few other devices BUT because Apple requires their typeset to be adjustable and coded in to accommodate for visually impaired and not a fixed font size. So what this means is if your dad buys a book on iTunes, he tries to ...

The Triton display is an E Ink display so it should greatly reduced power consumption when compared to a conventional LCD display. According to the E Ink website the Triton display has a similar crispness as an monochrome E Ink display. The price for the Ectaco Jetbook Color using this display is $499.95. However the price of future color E Ink displays ...

For general purposes, Ebooks are simple websites, contained inside of a predictable folder. This folder is composed mostly of the content of the ebook itself which is the form xhtml and css. The other files are files which declare exactly what contents are in the ebook folder. Each xhtml page, stylesheet, image, font, etc. is listed in one of these files ...

SolarMio provide integrated solar panels into their lighted cases for Kindle 4 and Kindle Touch devices. I bought 2 of their cases for the Kindle 4 in spring 2013 and they seem to be working well in Kenya where they're deployed with Kindles. http://www.solarmio.com/en/4712389290366.aspx (Kindle Touch) http://www.solarmio.com/en/4712389290168.aspx (Kindle 4)...

For laptops there are underlayers that have fans built in to actively support the air flow. You can position your kindle on such a board, or try to construct something like that yourself from old computer fans ( the ones for laptops are probably to big ).

Stop playing game or using the device for a while may be the best solution.

Size is more important than resolution for most visual impairments. As vision becomes more impaired, the ability to recognize detail is lost, and since text caries information in detail, larger sizes are used to compensate. Higher resolution adds detail, providing a better reading experience for those who can see it. One exception to this advice is people ...

Generally, the best way to save battery on a NOOK Color (or any device) is to: Lower the brightness Turn off Wifi and Bluetooth unless necessary These two steps can more than double your battery life on some devices.

While changing your battery is an option. I would recommend contacting Kindle support first. Even if the warranty has expired, free or low cost replacement devices can be had. In my experience, there are multiple levels of support. When I first called, someone speaking English as a second language was giving answers from helpdesk answer book, (not so ...

To be honest there are high probabilities that your screen died when you dropped the keyboard on the kindle's screen. My suggestion if you wanna keep it would be to remplace the entire screen by buying a brand new and following a tutorial like this one. Otherwise taking into account that the release date of the kindle DX was on July 1, 2010. You may ...

[Note: I know this thread is old, but I found it via a web search and have an answer for people in the future who find it that way as well.] There does not appear to be a built-in app, menu item, or button that allows you to view the download queue. On my Kindle Fire HDX, however, I can swipe down from the top, and any in-progress downloads are shown in the ...

I'm guessing that the reason you are asking the question is that for some reason you don't have access to the account associated with the device. YOu could probably check with the Amazon people, but I'm pretty sure that the only way to redeem a gift card is via a web browser and only if you have the account holder's login/pass. Another option is to just ...

Yes, there are many, both software only and hardware ebook readers that don't include web browsing especially older models. For many hardware ebook readers it doesn't make sense to have a webbrowser because they have no touch screen and no virtual keyboard, making it impossible to specify a URL. Most of these devices have no way to connect to the internet ...

The two devices that are closest to me requirements are the Kindle Paperwhite and Onyx Boox T68. As far as meeting the requirements goes: E ink display: both have one Supports English text and has English-English dictionary: both have one or two (this condition was only to rule out Japanese ebook readers with poor English support); the one included on T68 ...

As already commented, plug in the Kindle 4 to the wall or your Mac/PC. Let it charge for a bit -- even 15 minutes will help. Leave it plugged in, and press and hold the power button till the screen flashes. Wait a minute to see if it is doing a reboot. When that probably isn't enough, do it again. I've heard the number "5 times" and I've experienced ...
