While its solar panel is slightly smaller than LG’s (whose panels are also on the top and can be turned over), the Biblio Leaf isn’t without its own merits. It not only matches the Kindle’s size (8.5 x 5 inches) but its also has the same resolution ( 800 x 600 pixels). Its smaller solar panel does mean it takes longer than the LG’s four hours to charge.

Currently there are only plans to release the Biblio Leaf in Japan, but expect it to hit U.S. shores in the near future if the popularity of e-readers continues to grow.

    I think it might have been better if they had placed the solar panel on the back.
