Seiko Ultra Dense e-paper

Seiko Epson today introduced a new electronic paper display that may significantly improve the quality of eBook readers. A new 6.7-inch screen is capable of producing the same 1600x1200 resolution as a 20-inch desktop LCD, providing a far sharper picture than current readers and greatly improving the clarity of photos and other images in richer documents. This new development is also thinner and more power-efficient than today's readers, the company says: at 3mm thick, it can still last for as many as 1,400 page turns on a standard watch battery.

The news does not bring word of an actual device itself, though Seiko Epson is not known for making eBook readers itself and may sell the production display to other companies manufacturing their own e-readers. A completed device using the screen is expected within coming months. [via Tech-On]
