LG Solar-Powered E-Reader
E-readers are known for their special technology that's perfect for reading in bright sunlight. So it makes sense that LG has developed a solar-powered e-reader panel prototype by combining a 10-centimeter solar panel with a Sony Reader device. LG says that just 4 or 5 hours of exposure will power the e-reader for an entire day. The solar panel is expected to go commercial by 2012.
