Blio Reader?
Blio reader is an eBook reader app that is destined to be used on tablets such as Apple's rumored iSlate.
You load the application, download books and start reading them inside the application.
Blio is the creation of inventor and futurist Raymond Kurzweil. Will the blio include full books with pictures or will it be like the kindle that allows you just to see text?

Blio, will be licensed by vendors for use in their own hardware, which could be available in as little as 90 days.

While it is primarily intended for people with vision issues, it has the potential to be much more; people who have seen it have gone so far as to call it "the reinvention of the book."
Blio reader allows you to read full books with pictures, not just the text.
Blio would replicate the exact image of a printed page, rather than simply list the text out in the most convenient format.
But not only that.

Blio reader will have the ability to read PDFs, so any document could be loaded into the reader. By using a common format, K-NFB Reader also hopes to lower the production cost of e-books from oddly formatted, picture-heavy texts like cookbooks or science textbooks.
