Qualcomm will be unable to meet a 2010 launch date for its Mirasol color displays, instead the screens are now expected to arrive on the market in early 2011. GigaOM had the opportunity to test a prototype and says it works pretty well:
The extremely low-energy and low-cost displays are going to be used in eReaders and in tablets. I got hold of a working prototype at our Mobilize 2010 conference and snapped a handful of pictures. The displays are pretty much as advertised: even in full sun, the images are crisp and clear and I had no problem reading.
