    Color!  Is just around the corner.  At a recent technology conference in Las Vegas, various companies were showcasing their best and brightest ideas for bringing color to the e-reader world. 

    There is also talk in the tech world that the name e-reader will eventually fade out and these devices will be known as smart devices, much like smart phones.  The thought is that eventually these devices will be able to handle email, video, and web access (all in color) and much like devices that we already know of including the iPad. 

    Hesitations include the dullness of the screen as adding color often dims the display making it difficult to read, which is the first reason these devices were invented.  Companies are also deciding if they want to go the route of a smart device for fear that the original intention (essentially having paperless books) will be lost in all the hullabaloo of video, web, and color animation.
