Pixel Qi - the 'Qi' is pronounced 'chee' - the company behind a type of e-paper that's not only colour and able to cope with video but is also claimed to be fully readable in bright sunlight, has begun shipping its promised netbook conversion kits. The display panel on offer is a 10.1in job. Pixel Qi doesn't say what the …
When is it going to come out on mobile phones!!?!?!?!
"Qi" the non-allowed, allowed scrabble word.
you lost a rubber grommit
Sorry i feel bad now
Looking at my netbook (which is an Aspire One D250 with a 1024x600 display, and I believe the same as the machine in the photo,) that ain't 1024x600. The icons are too small for that - I've got 3x7 icons on my desktop, and it takes up nearly as much space as the 4x8 icons on that desktop.
Although, who knows, that could've just been a prototype at that resolution, and Acer did sell a 1280x720 D250.
All well and good...
...but I don't think that ruddy great mirro will help the Netbooks portability.
i wonder what the colour is like, both indoors and out??
netbooks are all very well, but maybe they should look at a 13.3" display to augment all the panasonic toughbooks out there... I get 13ish hours with the lid shut, but only 6ish hours with the backlight on full so being able to dispense with that would be awesome!
A lot of toughbooks are used outdoors so the market could be worth a bit more than the home netbook market!
Almost makes me regret going for the 7" eee.
Once screen that can be used in strong ambient light are perfected, watch the strong correlation in outside temperatures and working from home - I know I would rather be sat on the decking in the garden working on that project remotely...
I already do!
I have been known to work from the comfort of a yacht on a 3g connection... :)
it just requires full back light which hammers the battery...

Cost of delivery
You forgot the import duty, VAT and handling charge that's likely to be added...
That's an Acer Aspire there, guv!
"Technically, Maker and Pixel Qi are only offering the screen for two netbooks: the Samsung N130 and the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2. "Although they do work in other models, we can only guarantee compatibility on those two specific netbooks," it admitted."
Then... shouldn't they show the pictures with one of the netbooks they claim is guaranteed to be supported?
Unless, of course, they are trying to increase sales by implying that the picture proves it works in other makes/models?
Color e-paper with video?
(That doesn't suck?) I'm sure it's coming, but I'll believe it when I see it.
Nice back-reflected sceen
Not sure if there's any handheld gaming collectors out there, but the Neo-Geo Pocket Color (sic) has a screen like this (only smaller, obv!). It's absolutely bloody marvelous and allows me to play such delights as Sonic and Dark Arm in the Bajan midday sun!
Thumbs up from me.
