LG Phillips E-book: Flexible Means Flexibility

Illustration for article titled LG Phillips E-book: Flexible Means Flexibility

LG Phillips just announced their 14.1-inch WXGA flexible E-book at IMID 2006 (International Meeting on Information Display).


Besides 14.1 inches taking the crown as the largest E-paper display yet, it's completely flexible (though, maybe sticking the prototypes in hard cases isn't the best way to highlight this feature). The 300ms response time is still pretty far from displaying video, but any content needing a constant refresh will nullify the main power benefits of e-paper anyway. We're just one step closer to the Holy Grail of electronic displays: crumpling them up throwing them in the trash like basketballs.

WXGA is even more meaningless than other SUX-GA acronyms. Doing Gizmodo editors' job for them, the pic at AVING gives resolution as 1280 x 800. Also contrast ratio is >10:1, which sounds terrible compared with LCD but the prototypes look good.
