E Ink announces next generation display technology

Last week, E Ink Corporation announced that it will soon release its next generation display technology called Pearl.

According to the press release, “With Pearl, E Ink expands the capabilities of reflective displays, bringing electronic paper performance to the next level. With the whitest reflective displays in the industry, and a contrast ratio now approximately 50 percent greater than today’s products, text on Pearl “pops” from the page, enabling a reading experience most similar to reading text on printed paper.”

It is likely that Amazon’s second generation Kindle DX includes the new display. In a recent news release it says that the new Kindle will feature “50 percent better display contrast.” The new Kindle DX will begin shipping today.
