Seiko Epson Creates Hi-Res E-Ink Display
November 15th, 2007
This new electronic paper display from Seiko Epson crams an astounding 1600 x 1200 resolution into a 6.7-inch diagonal screen. That’s nearly 2-million pixels in a device that’s about the size of a letter-sized sheet of paper folded in half.
According to my rough math, the display cranks out over 230 pixels-per-inch, about 3 times that of the typical LCD computer screen. Perfect for use in electronic book readers, the flat panel measures in at just 3mm thick, and can display 1400 pages on a single button-cell battery.
While Seiko Epson hasn’t revealed any products which use the new display, it’s only a matter of time before we see these in real world devices.
