Philips Electronics has announced key gains in its polymer technology research putting the company on the verge of producing high resolution portable displays. The availability of such displays would yield a range of new capabilities which have long been forecast but have not yet been achievable:Share
- electronic books
- the possibility of reading a magazine from a screen housed inside a pen
- wall-sized TV screens which can be rolled up and stored when not in use
- retractable screens to enhance the use of mobile devices.
