E Ink Shows Off New Displays

E Ink, the company behind the screens of the same name, has shown off some new displays that are brighter, crisper, and apparently more flexible. The displays are all currently prototypes and the flagship model of those promises crisper and brighter colors. Now, the display is still not a full color screen but it instead has a filter applied on top of the black and white E Ink panel to make the colors brighter and deeper. Another display shown off was "fully flexible" though it could not display color. Yet another display could even display Flash video though E Ink was not letting anyone take video of it in action. Like I said, all of these displays are still prototypes so time will tell before any of them show up in e-readers.
