    E Ink Reports 46% Sales Drop, Expects E-Reader Shipments To Be Flat This Year

    E-readers, such as the Kindle and the Sony Reader, were a novelty five years ago. But they are already on their way out.

    Meet The Entirely E-Ink 3G Smartphone That Could Cost As Little As A Dumbphone

    It takes a lot to stand out at a trade show the size of Mobile World Congress. But here’s one device that caught my eye today: an e-ink smartphone. Unlike Yota Phone, the Russian startup that’s using e-ink as a second screen to augment the back of a powerful high end smartphone in a bid to stand out in the uber crowded Android space, this prototype device has just the one screen.

  • Welcome To The Future: Polymer Vision Demos SVGA Rollable Screen

    This 6-inch screen displays black and white e-ink text and images at 800×600 pixels and can roll around a tube the circumference of a dime. If this isn’t the future of print, I don’t know what is. Designed and manufactured by Polymer Vision, the screen can be rolled and unrolled 25,000 times. The question, obviously, is why would you need a rollable display? Well, as… Read More

    Phosphor watches can be credited with a very special honor. That being of the brand the officially popularized and mainstreamed e-ink watches.

  • Study May Lead To Actual Paper E-Paper

    Let’s not get too excited just yet, but a study performed by Dr. Andrew Steckl at the University of Cincinatti’s Nanolab has shown that electrowetting (the process by which current e-ink displays work) works just as well with a paper substrate as a glass one. The implications are… far off at the moment. But still cool. Read More

  • E Ink's Color "Triton" E-Paper Screens Make Their Debut

    We all knew this was coming, though whether the first to market would be the frontrunner, E Ink, or one of its competitors, has always been up in the air. Other color e-paper technologies have been bumbling along for years; Fujitsu’s FLEPia jumped the gun on color e-readers way back in 2008, and technologies from Ricoh and Qualcomm might easily have taken the lead. But for now, it appears… Read More
