There is not a ton of information about the KDDI R&D Laboratories Inc. â€œPortable Viewer Systemâ€ but what has been revealed is exciting. Itâ€™s A4 and can wirelessly receive images from devices like a mobile phone. The screen can display up to 4,096 colors and refresh in 12 seconds. Iâ€™m not sure whether e-paper means itâ€™s a derivative of eink or some other screen technology.
Strangely the device is nearly completely controlled by the handset. It doesnâ€™t seem a very practical interface, but it is a prototype.
