Mobile devices require displays that are effective under any lighting conditions, have a wide viewing angle and consume little power. Reflective displays are a candidate for such products, and a number of novel technologies have been recently announced. Overall it has been suggested that reflective displays will change the world of digital assistants in the E-market, but the killer application is still to be developed.
The project is divided into two parts. In the first part, the requirements for mobile devices based on reflective displays are extracted from a number of case studies. We look at the potential of the display technologies as well as the characteristics of application areas that differ in content and means of access. This way both commodity and top-of-line products will be identified. In the second part we select one case and detail a typical product such that the design, development and assembly costs will become quantified. Finally our results should allow the identification of potential killer applications and the validation of its near-future commercial outlook.
