Qualcomm's Mirasol technology mimics the structure of a butterfly's wing to provide a low-power, fast-refresh color display
Qualcomm's Mirasol display technology will add color and video to next-gen eReaders
Devices that incorporate Qualcomm's Mirasol displays should begin shipping by the end of 2010
As eReaders such as the Kindle and the Nook establish themselves with consumers, manufacturers are already looking ahead to the next generation of devices. Moving beyond e-ink, tomorrow’s eReaders will feature color displays and the ability to show video as well. To meet the needs of the most demanding users, eReaders will also need to feature long battery life and displays that are bright enough to read even in direct sunlight. Qualcomm’s Mirasol displays, which will begin shipping this year, address these needs using technology that mimics the coloration of a butterfly’s wings.
