LG today let everyone know of their new E-Ink flexible display. There are a few significant differences from the other displays that have been shown by different companies before. The major difference is the 19-inch size of the display with dimensions of 250x400mm. The other difference is the medium in which the E-Ink uses as a substrate. The normal substrate is made of glass while LG chose to use a metal foil material. This allows more strength with added flexibility and durability. While there is no announcement of an actual availability of the 19-inch display to consumers, LG did announce a 11.5-inch display for the second half of 2010. There is still no price point, but this advance is significant in making flexible E-Ink displays more viable in the market.
