Future Electronic Paper Display Devices

Nice overview of electronic paper display (EPD) technologies at Computerworld:

[Fujitsu’s] Fabric PC looks like a soft trifolded portfolio. Opened, it reveals a flat keyboard on one panel and a display on the other — a display that wraps under the keyboard. Unfold the
keyboard as well and the entire inner surface of the device is an EPD screen as big as a desktop display.

The Fabric PC isn’t a product prototype, stresses Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product marketing at Fujitsu, but an indication of the direction the company sees the market taking.
A Fujitsu subsidiary, Fujitsu Frontech, is one of the companies working on EPD technology, and it has produced sample quantities of color e-reader devices and sign panels.
