PVI says e-paper to be faster, brighter this year

PVI chairman Scott Liu today told the press that his company will produce some of the earliest fully touchscreen and motion-capable e-paper displays this year. Current screens often need a separate touchscreen layer and are too slow to show video or other animations, but screens with either feature should be ready by the end of 2010. PVI's touchscreen technique would put the touch underneath the e-paper and eliminate the unintentional dimming of the display, a problem that has affected e-readers from Sony and others.

PVI, the maker of the current Kindle's 6-inch e-paper display, is reportedly gearing up to make a version of the reader with a larger, touch-enabled display. The new reader would potentially arrive sooner than the second-generation did and may be ready by the end of 2009.
