Taiwanese acquire Philips' e-paper unit

Wouldn't it be nice not just to talk about e-paper technology but to actually own one of these nifty e-book readers that resemble real paper better than anything else we have seen? Now there's hope to believe that the situation will improve soon. According to a report from Digitimes, Prime View International (PVI), a Taiwan-based panel maker specializing in smaller-sized panel production, will acquire Royal Philips Electronics' electrophoretic display business and is planning to begin volume production of e-paper (Sony) products in Q4 2005:

Quote:
According to Liu [vice chairman of PVI], PVI has successfully tested electrophoretic displays made using a 6-inch panel and the company is scheduled to volume produce products for Sony starting from the fourth quarter. Sony was a major customer of the Philips unit, with the Japanese firm introducing its Librie e-book based on the technology last year.
Sony is in the game again, and we hope they've learned from their mistakes (we absolutely don't want another Librie fiasco).
