Plastic Logic Shows Off a Color ePaper Screen 50

Nate the greatest writes "I'm sure you've heard about the color E-ink screen which was rumored to be used on the next Kindle. As of today, E-ink no longer has that market niche to themselves. Plastic Logic held a press conference in Russia this morning where they unveiled a new color screen that uses their plastic-based screen tech. The resolution is low (75ppi), but if the video is any sign, then this might be a better screen than the 9.7" Triton color E-ink screen used on the Jetbook Color. And that's not all Plastic Logic showed off this morning; they also developed a frontlight for their screen, and they can play video at 12 frames per second. But best of all, they cut one of their screens in half just to show that it could still work."

    For readers who might not be aware, PlasticLogic went bankrupt a year or two ago, prior to that they made splash about its "plastic" (== "cheaper") e-ink type of screens. Taught shit, no one wanted to buy $600 e-readers. Later on, it was bought out by Russian investment company who wanted to make e-reader for schools (National e-reader).
