Qualcomm MEMS “e-paper” display debuts

Original Post from October 23rd 2008.

As reported here by TechnologyReview QuallComm has finally shipped their MEMS-based display technology.

This technology has the potential to be fast, bright and colorful but we think it's got limitations in size and it will be difficult to put onto a plastic electronics (read flexible) backplane.

In the photo it looks nice and bright, but just look at how bright the standard white "paint" lines and butterfly icon are on that device. I bet the photographer had to borrow extra studio lights from his buddies to get it like that!
