LG shows first color e-paper displays in Japan

At the Flat Panel Display International show in Japan on Wednesday, LG showed off its first commercial electronic color paper display. Thanks to PCWorld, it's known that two models were shown, including a full-color 9.7-inch screen along with a combination 9.7-inch screen that gets a monochrome display along with a smaller, color navigation strip along the bottom much like the Barnes & Noble Nook, but built-in. The full color screen can display 4,096 colors and has a resolution of 800x600.

As there is no light source in an e-paper screen, color or otherwise, it relies on ambient light to make the image visible. As such, the colors are slightly dull and won't match the brightness and color accuracy of an LCD screen.

The combination screen has a monochrome 1200x1200 image, while the color section was just 600x200. LG didn't specify when it will begin shipping the color screens.
