Mobile Phone with Pull-Out E-Paper Display

Europe

UK : Polymer Vision, the inventor of rollable displays and a spin out
from Philips, introduced the Readius product for commercial launch by
mid 2008. The exclusive device exploits the versatility of rollable
displays to merge the ‘reading friendly’ strengths of e-readers with
the ‘high mobility’ features of mobile phones. Together with the
Readius® internet portal, designed for personalisation and content
selection, the company offers a whole new mobile phone category.


“People
are demanding greater choice and flexibility in having overall instant
access to personal content and information” said Karl McGoldrick, CEO
of Polymer Vision. “They do not want to be concerned with small
screens, not being able to read in sunlight, a dead battery or a device
being too bulky to carry in their pocket. Readius® solves these worries
and is generations ahead of anything else out there today”.



Readius is the ideal travel companion

Designed around ease of use and mobility, Readius® can last for 30
hours of continuous reading without battery charge. The 3G HSDPA
tri-band phone allows worldwide calls and high speed instant updates
from personally selected news sources, email and other services.

Standard POP3 and IMAP is supported for ISP e-mail and others such as
Yahoo!Mail, Google Gmail and Microsoft Exchange. The Micro SD High
Capacity storage ensures quick and easy access to e-books and valuable
information. Readius® also features audio capabilities, including MP3,
for podcasts, audio books and music.


Readius internet portal delivers choice and flexibility

The Readius internet portal allows users to quickly and simply
configure their Readius® User Interface as well as select content and
services to individual style and needs. With zero clicks, personal data
and information is then ‘pushed’ whenever and wherever it is needed.

The portal presents content providers with a commercially attractive
channel to offer their content and services to the high growth mobile
consumer market. Polymer Vision is in discussion with numerous such
providers to populate the portal and make a broad choice of content and
services available to Readius owners.


Commercial

Readius will be available for commercial launch mid 2008, creating an
exceptional opportunity for mobile operators, retail outlets and
content providers to win new customers, increase revenues and develop
non-intrusive mobile advertising options. Specific details on timing,
volumes and pricing can be discussed by appointment.


Readius,
its applications, and the content download platform, will be on show at
the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 11th – 14th February 2008, at
the Polymer Vision booth, Hall 2, Booth C05.

My friend and I were recently talking about how technology has become so integrated in our day to day lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.
