E-Ink announces Next Generation displays, 50% better contrast

In an announcement synchronized with yesterday’s Amazon launch of Graphite Kindle DX, E-Ink reveals their new paper-like display generation called E Ink Pearl, scheduled for Q2 release. Amazon’s Graphite eReader is the first announced device to use E-Ink’s new technology.

E Ink Pearl builds on the current Vizplez displays used in the most popular eBook readers all over the world. The new display will be available in the following sizes: 5″, 6″, 7″, 8″, 9.7″.

Now, if only Amazon or B&N  would release additional eReaders with larger E Ink displays…while Kindle DX format is too large to carry around on a daily basis, an 8″ model would fit my needs perfectly.
