Hitachi W61H - phone with display of electronic paper (E-Ink)

2008-01-30
Hitachi W61H flip phone has a black and white 2.7″ e-ink display called “Silhouette screen” on the front cover. It comes with a number (actually 95 of them) of pre-installed graphic patterns, that user can select to make the phone look different.

For now, this e-ink display on the mobile phone is pretty basic, limited and available only in Japan. But give it a few years for improvements in e-ink/e-paper technologies, and we can expect another new market for mobile phone downloads to develop.

But this time, instead of ringtones and screensavers, we will be downloading the patterns and pictures for our phone covers.
