I listened to a conference panel at SID this spring. They all pointed out this problem. Will Liquidvista, Mirasol, et at. actually make it out the production door. Until they do, we're stuck with E-ink, LCD, and Pixel-Q. They each have their pluses and minuses.
Just thought I'd be helpful, it's called Pixel Qi (pronounced chee). Pixel Qi has fab access (I do not believe they own it), and Qualcomm Mirasol has a dedicated gen 4.5 production fab in Taiwan. Liquavista I believe recently set up a fab in China, and is being backed by Philips and other investors, along with a partnership with Plastic Logic. They're all commercially viable options. Mirasol has the best brand marketing behind it currently, while Pixel Qi is a gadget nerd favorite, though much less established and with weaker presentation (most public knowledge of it is from Charbax's interview videos and some low-quality snapshots of a prototype)
