Toppan introduces bendy e-paper technology

It's been a long time coming, but Japan's Toppan Printing has finally produced the prototype of a flexible thin film transistor (TFT) display. The display, which boosts a resolution of 4,800 pixels and is only 320 microns thin, consists of lightweight, bendable backplanes, making it possible to create future reading devices that use little power, provide higher screen quality under all lighting conditions and from all angles, and can be folded and rolled like a daily newspaper. Only caveat: don't expect to see anything like this in your store before 2008.

On reading the offical press release, this is not quite an eink technology huh. Its an advanced form of TFT, in terms of its manufacturing (via printing) and its characteristics (thin, lightweight and low powered).

The picture sure looks like eink to me.
