Better Kindle on the way? New generation of E-Ink displays announced

In the near future (and we are talking about 2011) we might see new Kindles and Nook models using the new E-Ink displays generation recently announced (source RedFerret). The next generation E-inkĀ  displays will have better contrast ratio (almost double the contrast of the current E-Ink displays) and also much higher refresh speeds, allowing for simple animations (see video). Gone will be the days when just a page turn would make you fall asleep. Another announced display technology features an almost indestructible screen, ideal for children books that usually look like they went through a war. Check the videos after the break.
