http://www.engadget.com/2009/06/03/v...d-at-computex/I don't think they're in any shipping products yet, but Pixel Qi has been ramping up their production lines so hopefully soon. Essentially it's an LCD/e-Ink hybrid... when the backlight is on, you get a full color LCD. When it's off, you get black and white, low-power e-Ink.
THAT's IT!!!! THAT is what I want! Yup - if iPad had that screen, I'd seriously think about it. I can't read on a glowing screen for a long time, but I love e-ink displays... That is very cool
