Lab Rat: Flexible Screen For Phones Just Two Years Away

A little mouse told me that Philips Polymer Vision scientists have made dramatic progress on a flexible, 5-inch display for cell phones the company plans to "roll out" in two years.

A little mouse told me that Philips Polymer Vision scientists have made dramatic progress on a flexible, 5-inch display for cell phones the company plans to "roll out" in two years.

Called the Polymer Vision PV-QML5, it's a 5-inch ultra-thin and very light 320 x 240 pixel active-matrix display.

You use it by grabbing a part of the phone and pulling it like a scroll.

The display has four gray levels, a monochrome display and is designed to replicate the look of paper. It uses what the geniuses at Philips call a bi-stable electrophoretic display effect, which is technology from E Ink Corp. that requires very little power.

The company has been simultaneously working on production technology for mass producing the display.
