Rumor: Samsung to use Liquavista screens

This rumor came across my desk:

Samsung is possible scenes for his new ereader technology from the Dutch base Liquavista. The world's largest display manufacturer, closed earlier this week collaboration with E Ink.

Samsung indicated that the cost for E Inks screens become too high, but that his activities in the ereader market will not suspend. The company has for the first quarter of 2011 a new ereader with LCD planned. The company from South Korea would Liquavista's 2.0-LCD technology, which elektrowetting is based , as an alternative to use E Ink. This type of e-paper screen has the same advantages as E Ink screens, but may possibly color video display . According to sources within Liquavista the use of its technology by Samsung "confirmed nor denied" to.

It is an interesting rumor, but I'm not sure I believe it. Samsung just abandoned several years worth of expensive research into new screen tech. I'd bet that Samsung corporate won't want to take any risks for a while.
