Ricoh epaper promises over double the brightness of its competitors

Ricoh have just unveiled a new epaper screen that they promise will have 2.5 times the brightness and 4 times the color spread. They've been working on this screen tech since before they released their first demo in march 2009 and they're finally ready to show it off.

Like E-ink, this is a reflective, bi-stable screen. On display at SID 2011 this week, the new display uses a lamination electrochromic method of production which forms separate cyan, magenta and yellow organic layers between two substrates. There's no word on cost or release date.

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."
