Liquavista is courting telecoms

+Plastic Electronics interviewed Guy Demuynck, CEO of Liquavista. Details are sparse, but they're still interesting. Here are a couple excerpts:

Guy Demuynck, CEO of Liquavista, explains: 'We are in discussions with people from this area - telecoms and mobile providers. They are thinking about subscription models.

'E-readers are offered as part of a package and providers already have deals on a selection of content. Telecom companies could do the same, and make these deals across many subscription products.'

Despite commercial successes such as the Kindle, ereaders - as a new class of consumer electronic device - are still struggling to find their feet. But the telecoms industry has and will continue to play a key role in their adoption, along with other multimedia digital content devices like the iPad and smartphones.

...

Liquavista is targeting the telecoms industry as the area where its full-colour displays can make an impact once manufacturing is underway next year.

Demuynck adds: 'The next step for ereaders will be magazines and newspapers. As these are driven by advertising, developers want full-colour displays and video capability.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
