Motorola Motofone F3 - Linux phone with electronic paper display

Posted on Saturday, December 02 2006 @ 15:00:59 CET by


Today Motorola released the Motofone F3 in India. This is the first model in the company's Linux-based Scpl phone lineup. Some special features are its electronic paper display, the high battery life (400 hours standby and 7.5 hours talktime) and usability features for the illiterate.
In place of the power-hungry color TFT LCDs found in nearly all mobile phones today, the Motofone sports a monochromatic "electrophoretic" display (EPD) dubbed "ClearVision." Sometimes referred to as "electronic paper displays," EPDs feature sunlight readability comparable to newsprint, yet require no power to hold an image, once set.

According to BetaNews, the Motofone's ClearVision EPD is sourced from E-Ink, which offers a Linux-based EPD development kit (pictured at right). An E-Ink EPD display was previously used in a Linux-based ebook reader from iRex.
