LG Display’s 19-inch Flexible e-Paper

LG Display's 19-inch Flexible e-Paper
LG Display announced its new 19-inch Flexible e-Paper. The new flexible e-paper is almost as big as a page of A3 sized newspaper and features a 19-inch wide (250x400mm) TFT on metal foil flexible display.

The product is optimized for an e-newspaper and able to convey the feeling of reading an actual newspaper. Additionally, as the product measures 0.3 millimeters thin, the e-paper weighs just 130 grams despite its 19-inch size. LG Display cited DisplaySearch saying that the e-book market will grow from approximately US$370 million in 2009 to US$1.2 billion in 2011 and to US$1.73 billion in 2015.

Meanwhile LG Display plans to launch mass production of an 11.5-inch flexible e-paper display in the first half of 2010.

It looks really impressive, if it has WiFi capabilities to download your e-paper that would be a plus and a decrease in the sale of the newspaper.
