Hybrid LED / E-Ink Display

Category: Gadgets
Posted: 02:48PM

After many complaints about reading eBooks on the iPad, Apple has patented a hybrid display that consists of an LCD screen and an E-Ink screen. This display allows for switching between the different display types. Using the LCD screen for games or apps and the E-Ink screen for anything reading related. In addition to easy reading, the E-Ink display can save battery life since it does not use a backlight.

The hybrid display would consist of multiple layers. On top would be the touch interface, in the middle the E-Ink display, and underneath the LCD display. This new idea can open up new possibilities in display viewing.

If apple implements something like this, then I will be getting an iPad. The screens on tablets are the big thing holding me back. (Laptop screens general suck too) I like the NI Adam that uses the Pixel Qi screen. But this version might overall work better. And I wouldn't have to order from India from a small company that might not be able to keep up with demand and updates. Will just have to wait and see how things pan out.
