They’ve stated once the tech goes into the manufacturing phase the display will look and perform much better than that less than stellar prototype they are still banding about.

Apparently the prototype was only showing 8 colours so the move to 4096 should be quite noticible.

At the end of the day we know reflective screens aren’t going to match like for like lcd but as long as it’s ‘good enough’ then most who would be interested in a product using this tech should be happy.

I still think liquavista will be the breakthrough that can merge lcd like qualities with the benefits of eink,they overhauled their website earlier this year so amazon must be preparing something in the near term future.

Good things are coming folks

106 dpi on the color display prototype. And in all the videos posted, nobody once asks what the hardware limitation is concerning resolution. I am sure they can probably get better, but it is still optical micro lenses.

I wonder what the brickwall is with current manufacturing process and what is possible in theory.

Just going by the video, it looks like they've got a long way to go yet before they have viable product.

For ebooks they need to compete with e-ink technology which is now up to 300 DPI and started at 150 to 167 DPI as I recall, depending on screen size. I would love to see a color tablet using a technology that combines ultra low power with reflective color and reasonable response for showing moving pictures or animation.

Bistable version:

It will be really interessting how the bistable screen looks like. ClearInk states that the reflection is 83 % which is double what e-ink can achieve. So the white and black hence the contrast will be much better. Compare a physical white page with a kindle paperwhite with frontlight off. It does not look like paper. So I expect that the ClearInk bistable version will look like paper even if the frontlight will be turned off. IMO the reading experience will be much better than on a kindle.

Video version:
As in the bistable version they can achieve a reflection of 83 %. So there is a lot of room to use a color filter which reduces reflection. With 4096 colors (the prototype showed just 8 different colors) the reflection will be reduced to around 40 - 45 %. Which is as good as the reflection seen on the kindle paperwhite but now with 4096 colors. In addition the shown prototype does not have a frontligth. With frontlight colors will look even stronger and better. Should they increase the ppi densitiy from 100 to between 200 - 300 this would be outstanding.

The ACeP from e-ink can show up to 32.000 but page turning will be too slow for using it browsing in the internet or even playing videos etc.. And I expect that ACeP will be very expensive compared to ClearInks technologie.

I bet all my money on ClearInk.
