PVI to bring faster and brighter e paper this year

The name PVI might not seem familiar to you, but it might just interest you if you know that PVI is the Kindle display manufacturer. According to PVI’s chairman Scott Liu, his company will be rolling out one of the first few full touchscreen and motion-capable e-paper displays later this year, and since the touch would be placed underneath the e-paper, this method eliminates the unintentional dimming of the display which has been a problem e-readers from other manufacturers such as Sony experienced to date. There were no further details available on how video content is supported, but we guess the onus is on the brains at PVI to figure that out while consumers just fork out the dough. It would be interesting to see Amazon’s purchase of Touchco result in a new Kindle that could take advantage of PVI’s new and coming touch surfaces.
