LG Philips with first flexible 14.1" color E Ink

From here:

Quote:
LG.Philips LCD [NYSE: LPL, KRX: 034220], a leading innovator of thin-film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) technology, announced today that it developed the world’s first 14.1-inch flexible color E-paper display, equivalent in size to an A4 sheet of paper. This is a second breakthrough in E-paper for LG.Philips LCD, which introduced the world’s first 14.1-inch black and white flexible E-paper display in May 2006.

The 14.1-inch flexible color E-paper uses electronic ink from E-Ink Corp. to produce a maximum of 4,096 colors. It can be viewed from a full 180 degrees, so that images always appear crisp, even when the display is bent.
Just saw this, thought you are interested

Yet another tease!...

We still don't have an official worldwide distributed device yet.

Nice to see you again Tribble.

4,096 colors is a nice step forward.

It really is beginning to feel that ebooks are about to take off. First plasticlogic, then Fujitsu, and now this. My long wait may be finally coming to an end.

Exciting times, transman, exciting times. They're finally getting the hardware where it is workable. Next we have the content/format knot to untangle.

That's the very thing I had in mind, I should have known one of you academics would get even so vague an allusion.

To cut the knot, all power over ebabel has to be centralized in one blade. No one has managed that yet. Attempts are numerous but each one adding an other strand to the problem. All we can do now is to wait for the said knot to rot.

Aaaah! The power of masses, just like in your signature.

Aren't you worried we'll be called communists again?

I think this is just a prototype, not even an announcement that they will at some point sell it.

Anyway, the screen seems very, very, very dark. I think what they're doing to get color is putting colored plastic over black and white eInk. That would reduce reflectivity three-fold!

Maybe not three-fold, but yes, I think that's what they're doing, and yes, it reduces reflectivity. The other option would be to create cells with different colored particles, though, which I assume would hugely increase the expense of manufacturing the stuff.

How about multi-colored particles? That way all the cells get the same particles (so no red-green-blue alteration), but the particles are more expensive. Cylinders with three (or four or six) sides that rotate to present the correct color.
