Sharp Antes Up in the E-Reader Game, Raises a 3D
Sharp has been pushing that their upcoming e-reader to be released in the US later this year will have new capabilities. Among these include color and XMDF, or ever-eXtending Mobile Document Format which enables video and animation to appear with text. President Mikio Katayama just added 3D to the list of possible futures for this e-reader. Katayama posited that people want more functionality in their devices and expressed that they have keen interest in 3D, especially when it comes to games. With the fact that Sharp already has pre-existing ventures in a 3D smart phone and a glasses free 3D display, the realization of these aspirations may not be too far off.
