Electronic Papyrus: The Digital Book, Unfurled

Anne Eisenberg in The New York Times, July 6, 2008
One new mobile device, the Readius, designed mainly for reading books, magazines, newspapers and mail, is the size of a standard cellphone. Flip it open, though, and a screen tucked within the housing opens to a 5-inch diagonal display. The screen looks just like a liquid crystal display, but can bend so flexibly that it can wrap around a finger.

Maker Polymer Vision's website for the Readius claims,
With Readius you can enjoy paper-like reading comfort on the move. You can read eBooks and news in the airport, train station, park, and even on the beach. You have no need to carry 3-4 books with you on business trips or on holidays anymore. With Readius, you can carry your whole private library of eBooks in your pocket and read all your favorite eContent for a week without having to re-charge the battery.

Additionally, you can get your personally selected news "as-it-happens", because Readius offers you instant worldwide access through the high speed 3.5G network. ...

If that means its a reader and wireless service package, I suspect the pricing will keep me from buying.
