Fujitsu Laboratories is set to announce improved color e-Paper displays at the Fujitsu Forum exhibition in Tokyo May 13-14. Supposedly these displays are quite a bit brighter (up to 1/3rd brighter with a 7:1 contrast ratio). More importantly Fujitsu is saying that new driver technology will allow the screens to redraw in 0.7 seconds.
The improvement in color and contrast is due to a new liquid crystal material that has better reflective capabilities.
