e-paper takes another step forward 06.12.2006, 11:59 AM

With each news item of flexible display technology, I get the feeling that we are getting closer to the wide spread use of e-paper. The latest product to appear is Seiko Epson's QXGA e-paper, which was recently introduced at a symposium given by the Society for Information Display. Even from the small jpeg, the text looks sharp and easy to read. Although e-paper will not replace all paper, I'm looking forward to the day I can store all my computer manuals on e-paper. Computer manuals are voluminous and quickly become outdated with each new upgrade. I typically repeatedly use only a few pages of the entire manual. All these reasons makes them a great candidate for e-paper. Perhaps, the best benefit is that I can use the new found shelf space for print books where I value the vessel as much as the content.

with each news item of flexible display technology,
_i_ get the feeling that the e-paper people are
getting more desperate about finding a niche.
the rocketbook was priced at $100-$200 and
still couldn't find a way to profitability.
the e-paper machines cost 2-4 times as much.
let's hope that progress drives the price down.
