Polymer Vision, the ePaper spin out from Philips is promising the Readius mobile phone again. Sounds like this year’s Mobile World Congress must start soon in Barcelona.
About one year ago Polymer Vision and the Telekom Italia was supposed to offer the Cellular-Book dubbed Readius in 2007. Looks like that did not work out and the new release of an improved Readius phone is now scheduled for mid 2008. The rollable display already has a long history. Philips showed it in 2005 at the IFA, back when the technology was still at Philips.
Let's let the past be the past and look forward to the promised commercial launch.
The new Readius phone will feature a 5" inch flexible epaper display with 16 greyscales. The overall measurements are only 115 x 57 x 21mm and the weight is 115g.
Other features of the 3G Readius phone (Apple, you can release new revolutionary phones with 3G in it) include 30 hours continuous reading, USB 2.0, ARM11 400MHz CPU, microSD card slot, email, mp3 player and ebooks.
There is no pricing information yet.
Readius, its applications, and the content download platform, will be on display at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 11th – 14th February 2008.
