E-Ink gets Flexible, Timely and All Lit Up
Apparently E-Ink is being sneaky. There's nothing on their own site, but they have been showing of some new kit at the FDP International In Japan.
Engadget is reporting that they are showing off a front-lit e-ink panel, the front lighting developed by Alps Electric. And mentions that they also have a flexible (read "not rigid" here) 9.7 inch panel on display.
Tech-On further elaborates that the front light "has a structure similar to the front light used in LCD panels, although its design was optimized for e-paper by 'finely adjusting the prism angle.'"
The 9.7 inch panel has an integrated flexible TFT substrate and a resolution of 1200 x 820. This panel, unsurprisingly, was made by our friends at PVI in Taiwan. And Tech-On notes that, "Mass production is scheduled for the second quarter of 2008."
And here's a bit of info that I don't believe we have seen before:
I'm probably a goober, but I'm particularly interested in the watches.
Thanks to Alisa for the heads up on this one! Please join the on-going discussion here.
