E Ink has introduced a new type of ePaper display which it says is half the weigh and half the thickness of a typical glass-based LCD. The company says that makes it new Fina screens well suited for devices that are larger than your typical tablet or eReader, since you can use an E Ink Fina display without adding much weight to the device.

For example the new PcoketBOOK CAD Reader features a 13.3 inch Fina display that weighs just over 2 ounces.

The PocketBook CAD Reader is aimed at architects and other professionals that could use a portable device for viewing CAD files — it’s not exactly a consumer-oriented device. But it does give us a first look at a Fina display.

We’ll likely start to see similar screens using the same TFT displays with E Ink’s thin glass substrate in other devices in the future.

  1. This is all useless BS, put it into consumer devices like tablets, cell phones or STFU, cause weve been hearing ePaper this, ePaper that but never, NEVER seen legible product released for masses, the same applies to PixelQi.

  2. How about something like this on one of these smartwatches we all hear about? Great battery life, viewable in the sun, thin, light, and can display all the time.
