More information on the Mirasol display

Engadget has got some new information on Qualcomm's Mirasol display exhibited at CES:

  • Qualcomm claims a 6X (!) power advantage over E Ink in a typical usage scenario, even with the color and video.
  • Qualcomm expects that the first product that uses their display will indeed use the 5.7" XGA display that Qualcomm are showing.
  • The display can be paired with a capactivie or resistive touchscreen (which impairs visibility a little, just like it does with any other display).
  • Qualcomm has a method to light the display from the edges, which will provide even lighting across the display.
