The Skiff Reader uses the world’s first metal-foil e-paper display technology. The stainless steel substrate reduces the e-reader thickness and weight. To improve the quality and durability, this device uses the LG Display instead of the glass-based display and this makes the Skiff to be the only tier one manufacturer producing a non-glass e-paper display.

It also offers multi-platform digital publishing to make it more visual, cross-platform texts and easier for consumers to access contents from multiple publishers across a range of devices.

This e-reader will also support wireless connectivity via Wi-Fi, so users can directly connect to Skiff service and digital store and access a wide variety of newspapers, magazines, books, blogs, and other digital contents from different publishers.
