E Ink and LG.Philips LCD build 10.1-inch flexible display


E Ink has gotten together with LG.Philips LCD to develop what they're billing as the world's first "tablet-size" flexible electronic paper display. It's a 10.1-inch paper-white display made from high-performance steel at less than 300 microns thick, achieving SVGA (600x800) resolution at 100 pixels per inch. It's also doing a 10:1 contrast ratio and four levels of grayscale, and will be shown at the FPD International trade show in Japan in April of next year in all its flexible, rollable glory.
