We're getting close to electronic paper here, people. Get your panties in a bunch. Come on. We're waiting. OK. Good.

Polymer Vision, a subsidiary of Philips, reports that they will present a portable consumer device with a "rollable display" at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) in Berlin, Germany, September 2-7. The prototype, called Readius, has a monochrome 5-inch QVGA display with four grey levels that can show maximum two images per second; colour screens with quick move images aren't possible yet.

Looks like more proof-of-concept, but if they've got something moving on that screen, we're entering the diamond age.
