I had a brief talk with a Qualcomm rep today, and as usual the most common response was "no comment". The talk was brief because the rep maintained the company line. You know that Pocketbook are working on a Mirsol ereader, right? Well, no. Not according to Qualcomm. They never said that so they refuse to admit it to be true.
I understand that they have to maintain the company line, but I still find it extremely irritating to here someone deny basic facts like who did what at CES, what information has been leaked, etc. It's their job, yes, but that doesn't mean I like it.
I can't give you any solid new info besides confirmation that Mirasol should hit the market in Q2 of this year, but here's something interesting.
Update: Actually, I do have something new I went digging through my old posts and it turns out that the Mirasol screen was supposed to his the retail market last month. So the new release date of Q2 is actually a second delay. This screen was also supposed to be Q1 2011.and
That is an engineering sample for a 4.1" screen (227ppi, or 800x480 resolution). Qualcomm are trying to get the attention of smartphone makers. I find this delightfully amusing; the Amazon Blaze April Fool's Day Joke just got slightly more plausible.
