Pixel Qi readers?

According to http://www.pixelqi.com/products they will be start mass production of screens in December 2009.
No mention of them actually producing e-readers at this stage.
Has anyone heard of any other company gearing up to try these screens for e-readers (not laptops)?

This technology sounds very interesting if it works.

I've read about some Aztak rumors, but can't remember the source.

That's because Pixel Qi doesn't make e-readers, they only manufacture the screens.

None that I've heard of.

Unless it's changed recently, the rumor was that Aztak was going to meet with Pixel Qi to see their technology, not that they would necessarily be using it. From what I heard, their response after the meeting didn't seem very enthusiastic.

Aztak said it could offer several 3G e-readers, with some shipping late this year. The 3G wireless models might include one with a “flexi” 9.7-inch screen plus a mobile Internet device (MID) with a color screen that can also be used in monochrome mode for e-reading. Such a dual-purpose screen will be available by year’s end from Pixel Qi, with whom Aztak said it has “held extensive in-person discussions,” according to Aztak global business development director Bob Barry.

Thanks, that's good information to know. I'd be nice if there was something more definite than "might include" though.
