Mediocre monochrome? Not for LG Philips: yesterday, the company announced a flexible E-Ink display that’s capable of displaying up to 4,096 colors on a 14.1-inch sized component. The viewing angle is a full-180-degrees and according to the press release, "images always appear crisp, even when the display is bent." Like other E-Ink products, the display only uses power when changing the image or text: once rendered, the screen uses no power, making this technology very appealing for mobile devices. 14.1-inches isn’t exactly small for mobility, but LG Philips makes it up on the thickness: the display is less than 300-micrometers thin!
