Tech-On reports Samsung demonstrated a 10.1" color e-paper screen at FPD International 2009 in Japan. This device is made using a glass TFT substrate, E Ink Corp's e-paper and a color filter. Mass production of these devices is slated for 2010 or 2011.
The color e-paper device was made by combining a glass TFT substrate, E Ink Corp's e-paper and a color filter. Though the color filter uses a plastic substrate, the device is not flexible because of the glass TFT substrate.
The e-paper device, which is 0.7mm thick, has a pixel count of 450 x 600, a contrast ratio of 10:1 and a reflectance of 12%. It is capable of displaying 7% of the NTSC color gamut.
