World's first tablet-sized flexible E Ink display
LG Philips and E Ink have announced the world's first tablet-sized flexible electronic paper display. The 10.1 inch 800X600 SVGA display, with 100 pixels per inch and a 10:1 contrast ratio, is less than 300 microns thick. The paper-white four grayscale display is as thin and flexible as construction paper. From the press release:

glass displays. You can roll them up and put them in your pocket. You can

This new display would be ideally suited to a digital future newspaper, a low-cost/low-power tablet suitable for e-book reading, as well as other applications like garments with display capabilities and places where current display technologies can't be used.

Since LG Philips is known for aggressive pricings, there's hope that this device will actually be affordable once it's available. Say bye to the Librie.
