Blio E-Reader - Will it be a game changer?

Last week I asked whether e-readers will become obsolete as consumers demand devices with more functions. If you can read an e-book on your phone or laptop/netbook, why carry around a dedicated reader, such as Sony's Reader or the Amazon Kindle? Plus, there's the issue with cross-compatibility, or, bottom-line, incompatibility.

Well, looks like a company called Baker and Taylor will soon be introducing another way to read your e-books. And this one looks like it could really be a game changer. Of all the new stuff it's supposed to bring to the technology, I personally like the idea of "fanning" pages. One of my biggest gripes with e-readers is the fact that, unlike a paper book, you can't "skim" pages. How many times do you do that with a book? Probably a lot more than you realize.
