Mirasol showcases 4.1-inch smartphone concept at SID 2011

From EnGadget:

Mirasol showcases 4.1-inch smartphone concept at SID 2011, promises 'converged e-reader' this year

Quote:
Contrary to popular belief, Mirasol actually has no control over the shipment of end products. All it can do is ship panels to partners; it's on them to actually bring wares to market. The good news, however, is that the company's 5.7-inch, low-power display actually will see the light of day by the end of 2011, with at least one "converged e-reader" slated to bring a 3x battery life improvement to a mobile reader format.
Pretty good B/W contrast in the photos, though some weird glare or edge-lighting (?) at the top of the screen.

And...'3x battery life improvement' - compared to what?

compared with lcd.

its edge lighting only for that particular display for that concept idea for that kind of show.
