Amazon, others to use new color E-ink displays?

  1. Prime View International (PVI) showed 6 and 9.7-inch color E-ink prototypes at a trade show in China this week, and they could make their way into e-readers later this year. The company reportedly demoed the smaller display with an animated clip of blue and red racecars driving on a track, but said its refresh is too slow for real video playback.

    Very neat. I would love to see color e-ink in action. Between this, tablets, netbooks, etc. the lines are getting blurry as to the differences.

    I have followed this screens for quite a while, can't wait to see them in netbooks for extra battery life, along with dual core atoms.

  5. Looks like someone's re-invented the passive matrix LCD display.

    For me, the LCD display looks old and the case itself. But looks like it has something more to do, hope so...

    I'd think Amazon and Barnes & Noble are looking towards something more then what they have since the tablet competition is clearly superior and consumers might want that.

    This is going to be an interesting year, with this and the other low power sunlight visible displays.

    @"Looks like someone's re-invented the passive matrix LCD display" -- e-ink is active matrix.

    Yeah, but if i get a dual core it is because i am going to be doing something multimedia intensive, which so far these screens don't look that great for. For low powered reading/display devices they look great, but not so much for a general purpose computer.
