Qualcomm’s mirasol team had their animated demo device at MobileFocus today, but what was more interesting was their information about shipping e-readers using the low-power display technology. They’ve confirmed that the first mirasol-based unit is expected in fall 2010, though they won’t reveal who exactly will be using the panel.
We’re still hearing rumors that Amazon are looking at mirasol for their next-gen Kindle, though it’s not something anyone is talking about on the record. Still, whichever company gets the 5.7-inch, 1024 x 768 panel the results are surprisingly good; Qualcomm aren’t releasing fps figures, but video performance looks pretty smooth. You can bet we’ll be keeping a close eye on this over the next few months.
