VIDEO: Qualcomm Mirasol display technology, the future of eBooks?

Qualcomm’s Mirasol display technology has the potential to upend the e-book reader market, and possibly cause some issues for the LCD-based slate PCs.

The 5.7-inch prototype Qualcomm is displaying could be Kindle-bound, XGA version, which is 240ppi pixel density and a 6x power advantage over E-ink in a typical usage scenario.  The display is full color – reportedly it works better in a brightly lit environment than the competition.   The display could be paired with a capacitive or resistive touchscreen, a best case scenario is apparently optical touch.   Reportedly the Mirasol uses less power – and is supposed to be faster than current technologies.

    From what I’ve heard, mirasol displays are about 3X more power efficient than pixel Qi (and LCD, after all). That’s where my money is. They have good resources on their site at http://www.mirasoldisplays.com/ereader

    So, which technology will win? Pixel Qi or Qualcomm Mirasol?
