E-Ink outships OLEDs in cell phones
You've all seen Motorolla's new cell phone with the E-Ink display. Here's some news about it.

interesting. Just at the begining of this year I was almost sold on OLEDs as the end all and true solution to longer battery life on laptops & other portable devices. Since then I really have been researching e-ink based ebook devices in earnest this past few months I have developed a belief that e-ink is the true future over OLED...the main reasons are two fold.
First is OLED has a built-in life-span issue. They degrade and die. We won't see OLED devises last for 20-years are their CRT or even LCD counterparts easily do. E-ink displays should not suffer the same fate and should pretty much last a lifetime.
The second reason is the obvious one...POWER. E-ink can solve the biggest problem created by the proliferation of computer devices...power consumption. Specifically power demands of all the other display technologies currently in use today.
Once e-ink moves into color (and I recall that has already happened or will be happening this year???) all bets are off and we will finally begin to see devices requiring far less power which are safer to use because they will generate less heat associated with the power storage. Sure CPUs will still have large power demands but that oo is chaninging...it's just great to see display technology finally moving to that next evolution!!
