Battery life figures might be interesting if you want to buy the unit. But if you are interested in designing in the MEMS display then energy to alter the display is key. Clearly battery life depends on how many pages you turn. Qualcomm don't give a battery life but say the reader should last for "weeks" based upon 30 minutes of daily reading time with WiFi turned off and with the front light set to 25 percent utilization. That sounds like several hours of continuous use but going down if you are reading under the bedclothes with the front light on and the WiFi going. Hope that helps.

The most interesting spec left out... battery life.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
