PocketBook USA announced plans to show off its new line of eReaders at CES, the highlight being its Mirasol eBook reader, a color eReader sporting Qualcomm’s Mirasol display technology.

Many believe Mirasol is the future of color eReaders. The low-power screen technology displays color, has contrast levels and glare resistance on par with eInk, and supports video up to 30 frames per second.Mirasol

PocketBook was light on details regarding the Mirasol eReader, only mentioning it would be on display at the CES tradeshow happening January 6 – 9 in Las Vegas.

In addition, PocketBook plans to showcase five other eReaders, including the six-inch PocketBook Pro 602 and ten-inch Pro 902 standard models, as well as the premium PocketBook 603 and 903, which support stylus input.

PocketBook will also have its IQ701 on display. This seven-inch device has a color TFT touchscreen, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, and runs the Google Android 2.0 operating system.

Mirasol is not the only color eReader display technology in the works. E Ink holdings, the company behind the eInk displays found on the Amazon Kindle, NOOK, and many other eReaders, announced last month E Ink Triton, the company’s first color eInk display. China-based Hanvon intends to bring the first E Ink Triton device to market in March with a 10-inch color eReader that could cost $440. They have not announced plans to bring it to the US market, however.
