Best e-paper technology

I've a question: it is possible to have a resume of every e-paper technology available ?
I'm a neophyte and I'd like to know more about this aspect.

Thanks to anyone who can help me.

PS: personally I've only seen e-ink devices or prototypes and I think it's a very promising tech.

clabot, I think there are various news articles giving a quick overview of current e-paper technology; alas, as far as I can tell, only E Ink has really made it into mainstream. So we definitely lack experience with the other technologies. It would certainly be a good idea to collect the information we got and summarize it in the Wiki.

Didn't we have a table somewhere showing off all eink readers at the time?

We could have a new one with ALL reading devices we talk of, accessed through the front page.

There are other e-paper technologies in the works beside E Ink. For instance, Fujitsu's e-paper which is based on cholesteric liquid crystals.

yvan is right, we should check if the table misses a reader or two.

Thanks TadW!

We should also add other devices such as smart phones, PDAs and Nano!
