LG 19-inch flexible e-paper to get 2010 production run

LG e-paper to bring new life to e-readers

LG has declared that it is to develop a range of flexible and colour e-papers ready for inclusion in future e-readers and tablets with production set to commence before the end of the year.

The imminent “mass-production of 19-inch flexible e-papers and 9.7-inch colour e-papers” marks the culmination of years of research and development in to the electronic paper technology that holds the possibility adding up to 16.7 million colours to the current breed of monochrome screens used in many e-reader devices.

Providing the screens for Apple’s iPad tablet and Amazon’s Kindle e-reader, LG Display Co will have to combat the cost and usage issues that have previously troubled the introduction of flexible and colour e-papers if it is to make the technology a common feature in future tech.

Offering flexible electronic paper up to 19-inches, LG’s new batch of products pose many exciting possibilities for the future of e-reader devices that could see newspaper style publications landing on a single sheet of e-paper.

However, despite the possibilities, the difficulties in producing these flexible e-papers caused Plastic Logic to cancel plans to release the Que this month with the company stating simply it was redirecting its focus on the next-generation of e-reader.

Would a newspaper sized e-reader have a place in the market? Let us know if you think this 19-inch mammoth will take off via the T3 Twitter and Facebook pages.
