SII and Nemoptic plan to deliver color e-paper in Q2 2007
Seiko Instruments (not to be confused with Seiko Epson) and French e-paper producer Nemoptic have entered into an agreement to produce LCD modules in high volumes based on the latter's bistable BiNem technology.

Producing a screen is nice, but what I'd like to see is the full device. Price, supported formats, design, battery... The prototype that we saw in some of the previous videos wasn't really that good looking. The good point with this technology is that unlike e-ink, you don't need a new plant. They could easily produce a whole lot of devices this year.
Edit: I'm thinking about doing a video podcast for Feedbooks. Since some of the major players are in Europe, and some of them in France (Mobipocket, Nemoptic), it might be interesting. I'll start digging a little deeper about all this... We already got the servers to host such a thing with Feedbooks and it could be interesting to create the first videocast dedicated to e-paper.

At least they were confident enough of their technology to provide a face shot of a parrot.
Which doesn't surprise me at all. Seiko Instruments has always impressed me with the quality of their products. This announcement actually gets me mildly excited.
