Shame the press release has nothing on pricing or robustness.
I suspect that these displays must be on a glass substrate. The mention of amorphous silicon TFTs seems to indicate this, as does the subsidiary announcing it (NEC LCD Technologies - LCDs all use glass).
And mostly I suspect that if they weren't using glass they'd be making a lot of noise about the new substrate and how strong it was!

This almost makes me yearn for a eInk tablet that could run photoshop (or at least some half-decent graphics program).
My ongoing experience with the Onyx Boox M92 - Episode 2: A Quick Peak Down The Rabbit Hole NEW!
