The Pixil QI looks HOT!

Wow! A netbook/tablet pc (currently Pixil is demoing their oled screen on an 8.9" Acer netbook) with an OLED display! Not only that, but in reflective/'in sunlight' mode, it only draws 0.8 WATTS of power!

Think about it for a minute. Here's a netbook/tablet pc which runs full color in backlit mode and displays in black & white in non-backlit 'reflective' mode. That means you've got the best of transmissive and reflective displays for both indoor and outdoor use.

Add in the low weight and low power draw and this may well be strong competition for the e-ink ebook readers.

I can hardly wait. :-)

Hi Oscar,

Ummm... Have you charged your Cybook for several hours? That might help. Also, have you done a complete removal of the battery, wait a few minutes, replace the battery and then hit the Reset button? That might help.
