Amazon to unveil a colour ebook reader soon?

E Ink is taking orders on colour displays meaning you could be reading your next Stuff magazine on an ereader

E Ink Holdings – who we interviewed and revealed is making a colour ebook reader – has just taken an order from Amazon for 6in colour ebook readers shipping in March.

With an order of more than 3 million a month it’s likely this one will reach the UK, unlike the Kindle Fire. Imagine reading your next Stuff magazine on a colour ebook reader that lets you read next month's issue without a recharge, and soon.

No word on pricing or a release date but it’s likely you’ll be ereading in colour shortly after March if shipping details are true. And it shouldn’t cost much more than the current Kindle at around the £150 mark.
