Reuters: Electronic Newspapers Could Arrive This Year

Nothing we don't already know, but the fact that Reuters has picked up the story about electronic newspapers must be a good sign.

But as early as this year, the future may finally arrive. Some of the world's top newspaper publishers are planning to introduce a form of electronic newspaper that will allow users to download entire editions from the Web on to reflective digital screens said to be easier on the eyes than light-emitting laptop or cellphone displays."
