Fujitsu's second-gen color e-paper – brightness x 1.3, re-write speed x 2, contrast x 3

E-paper has some compelling advantages for the next generation of handheld and tablet devices.

The principal developer of color e-paper to date has been Fujitsu which has just announced a dramatic increase in color e-paper display quality. The technology will be shown this week at Fujitsu Forum 2010 (May 13 - 14 at Tokyo International Forum) and can be expected in Japanese market e-book readers and advertising billboards by Q3 this year.  Read More
