Freescale can get 8 frames per second with E-ink
`Charbax shot this video at the Freescale suite the other day. (It’s off site, so I haven’t had a chance to make iy over there with my camera).
This demo unit is using a Pearl screen and is running on an i.MX508 CPU which was designed specifically for ereaders and incorporates a Cortex A8 800MHz processor and E Ink display controller.
Just don’t ask them what the power requirements are. This unit probably draws more power than a comparable LCD.

Wow. this is indeed groundbreaking. I look forward to when we’ll have up to 25-30fps eink. Reading will again be reborn! this is great news indeed.
