LG.Philips develops high-res A4 e-paper

New LG.Philips A4 e-paper

The joint company LG.Philips LCD says it has developed a new type of e-paper display, one which is claimed to be the best in its class. Although built in the standard A4 paper size, measuring 14.3 inches diagonally -- a format LG.Philips has already explored -- the new display is unusual in that it has a maximum resolution of 1280x800, slightly above the 720p HD ratio. It also has an abnormally high range of colors, extending to 16.7 million versus the frequently low-color or monochrome displays of e-book readers such as the Amazon Kindle.

As with many e-paper displays the new one is flexible enough to be rolled up, but in this case retains a full 180 degrees of viewing area. LG.Philips will be demonstrating the technology at next week's CES expo, starting January 7th. No retail products have been attached so far.
