Solar-powered tablet

Pixel Qidesigns hybrid displays for mobile devices that are just as easy to read outdoors as indoors. The company has developed a 1-watt solar panel containing new, higher-efficiency cells that can power a screen and a motherboard. A panel placed around the bezel, in fact, could provide enough juice to run low-power tablets and e-readers, the company says. In full sunlight, the Pixel Qi solar panel provides 1 watt of power. In partial sun, of course, it produces less juice. Solar bezels may someday be standard on low-cost tablets, such as One Laptop Per Child's upcoming XO-3 device, which is designed for students in developing countries.
