Flexible display are on the roll, say iSupply analysts

Alright, let's take this all with a grain of salt, but analysts at research firm iSuppli are projecting that the market for flexible displays will grow to US $2.8 billion by 2013. Digitimes writes:

Due to the arrival of Polymer Vision's Readius pocket-sized e-reader and other such products, iSuppli forecasts the total flexible display market will reach US$2.8 billion by 2013, a 35-times expansion from about US$80 million in 2007.
The article cites a 4-inch flexible AMOLED display by LG Display and Universal Display, E Ink's flexible electrophoretic bi-stable displays (as already used in a few wristwatches), Polymer Vision's "soon-to-be-in-the-market" Readius (of which a 65k colors prototype is supposedly also available), and PVI's Flexi-e technology.

All drool-worthy inventions, but let's hope that we can soon enjoy these with our hands rather than just write about them.
