I’m very excited by colour e-paper. Not least because I like Harry Potter – and I really look forward to the day when we buy newspapers (as in Harry Potter’s magical world) and the photos move and change. That’s what e-paper has the potential to do.
So it was great to read that colour e-paper is just around the corner. Fujitsu has announced its next-generation colour e-paper; this is more likely to lead to the possibility of lightweight colour ebooks with long battery life than newspapers with moving pictures in the short term – but the long term is another matter.

The technology still seems to lack the ability to generate really vibrant colours but I am sure this is a problem that will soon be resolved.
