Tech Review: Cheap E-Paper Displays Coming to a Store Near You

http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/guest/25465/

Quote:
In a five-part demo just posted to YouTube and exclusive to Technology Review (as of this writing, none of these videos has more than a few dozen views) Nemoptic shows off its new black and white "bistable, nematic" e-paper technology.

This first video shows off the display's relatively fast, 30 millisecond refresh, and a resolution sufficient to "render complex Chinese characters." (Note the implicit focus on an extremely price-sensitive emerging market.)

In an intriguing development, this video shows the display's ability to do a partial refresh--that is, to only refresh the part of the display that requires it. It could be both a performance-enhancing and a power-saving measure.

it seems that the company has come up with a technology that is both versatile and, importantly, very cheap
I don't believe it a bit. I smell either vapor or under-delivery. We are supposed to print out ultra cheap OLED TV with an inkjet printer. The Pixel Qi is supposed to be as cheap as LCD, yet the price of the screen replacement kit is on par with a whole netbook.

Engadget is covering it too. Looks pretty impressive compared to current e-ink!

We've all seen impressive technology demonstrations. Making the transition from a single demonstration unit to large-scale commercial production is where so many companies seem to go off the rails, unfortunately.

Early versions of the Gameboy used reflective LCD which were, I believe, more power-efficient than E-Ink.
