Royal Philips Electronics, and E Ink Corp., a developer of electronic ink technology for paper-like displays, have completed the first phase of their joint development agreement for electronic ink displays announced in February 2001.The two companies also stated their intention to commit additional spending and commercialization of the product in the middle of next year. The product will be use in handheld devices such as electronic readers, PDAs and mobile communication devices.

"Philips is leveraging its strengths in display technology and system architecture to help OEM customers create unique mobile products. In fact, we are already in design-in discussions with several customers," said Peter Hopper, CEO of Philips Components' Mobile Display Systems business. "Electronic ink displays offer paper-like readability, are thin and lightweight, and consume substantially less power than today's handheld displays. These attributes make them a perfect match for our vision of next-generation displays, particularly for smart handheld devices," he added.
