Finally, an e-reader you can roll up and stick in your pocket

The sales figures for most newspapers and magazines have been dropping faster than BP's approval rating, so many publishers are betting on e-readers as their saving grace. Most people find that the e-reader experience can rival the regular paper version, except when it's time to put your reading materials away. Unlike a magazine that you can roll up and stick in your coat, e-readers tend to be rigid tablets that won't fit into any normal sized pocket.

The eRoll concept looks to solve that problem, with a flexible screen that lets you roll it into a compact cylinder. While it's still pretty bulky, it should fit into a decent-size coat pocket. Just don't try using it like a rolled up newspaper to swat those pesky flies.
