Flexible display are on the roll, say iSupply analysts

Alright, let's take this all with a grain of salt, but analysts at research firm iSuppli are projecting that the market for flexible displays will grow to US $2.8 billion by 2013. Digitimes writes:

Quote:
Due to the arrival of Polymer Vision's Readius pocket-sized e-reader and other such products, iSuppli forecasts the total flexible display market will reach US$2.8 billion by 2013, a 35-times expansion from about US$80 million in 2007.
The article cites a 4-inch flexible AMOLED display by LG Display and Universal Display, E Ink's flexible electrophoretic bi-stable displays (as already used in a few wristwatches), Polymer Vision's "soon-to-be-in-the-market" Readius (of which a 65k colors prototype is supposedly also available), and PVI's Flexi-e technology.

All drool-worthy inventions, but let's hope that we can soon enjoy these with our hands rather than just write about them.

What flexible displays exist on the market? Are they serious US$80 million in 2007?

About the only one I can think of is the Lexar Jump drive, and that hardly counts since it is a specialized single purpose display. And it is in a rigid case, though the flexible displays I'm most looking forward to are not the plastic rollable kind, but the stainless steel rugged kind.
