I was catching up on some news today and found this article:
The article is about a Taiwanese company that has a prototype of an e-reader with a solar powered source for outdoor use and still has a regular plug-in source for when indoors. I have a Nook and I love it so it makes me wonder, why didn’t someone think of this sooner?!?! A solar-powered e-reader? I could take that to the park, the beach, anywhere and never have to worry about my battery! A great leap, to be sure.
