COMPUTEX d&i awards 2011

The BK7004 is a 7 inch eBook reader; its book inspired aesthetics invoking the familiar experience of a printed book. Its cylindrical left edge looks like a book spine while the other edges are designed to look like pages bound between the book covers, creating the sensual form of a book. Asymmetry in the design with its button configuration, that positions the control button within the reach of the thumb, provides comfortable and intuitive one handed control. The built-in gravity accelerometer rotates the screen according to its orientation to suit both left and right handed users. It brings the reading experience closer to that of reading a printed book.
