I imagine one day we will have electronic newspapers instead of paper ones. Well folks, LG is already making flexible newspaper E-reader. I think this could be the next big thing. I’ve seen slew of E-readers at CES 2010 that mimic the Kindle, I just don’t see a point in making e-readers the same but LG has done it. Now newspapers can actually survive this digital-era, better start calling LG and start setting up some newspaper subscriptions.
SEOUL, Korea (AVING) — <Visual News> LG Display has developed the world’s largest flexible electronic-paper screen measuring 25cm by 40cm, which translates into a 19-inch screen size.
With 0.3mm thickness and 130g weight, it utilizes a metal foil instead of a traditional glass to make itself both flexible and durable. Boasting a high-contrast ratio, it only requires power when the screen is refreshed so the e-paper device features a long battery life.
According to the company, they plan to begin mass production of an 11.5-inch flexible electronic paper screen in the first half of this year via Skiff.
