Bendable e-readers come closer to reality

Washington, Mon, 02 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 2 (ANI): One of the world's largest LCD Panel maker is set to unveil flexible electronic paper displays or EPDs.

E-readers are a great device, but one of the biggest disadvantages is that they are made of breakable glass and sensitive electronics that can get damaged when dropped. Books, by contrast, are quite durable.

LG Display has brought flexible, light and tough e-readers a little closer to reality as the company has announced mass-production of EPDs.

It has been dubbed the XGA, and is 6" across, smaller than most tablets and bigger than a phone.

LG says the e-reader can handle getting bent up to 40 degrees and is only 0.7 millimeters thick-about the same as six sheets of typical office paper and slimmer than typical displays. It also weighs less than half an ounce. It has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, which is as good as any current e-reader, the Discovery News reported.

As far as toughness is concerned, LG insists the display can handle getting dropped 1.5 meters, or a hair under five feet. That's about where most people would hold an e-reader standing up.

The first releases will be going to Chinese companies, and to European manufacturers next month. (ANI)
