At SID 2011 Sony has unveiled a remarkable 13.3 inch ePaper prototype screen that is extremely flexible and as thin as real paper.<br /><br /><h3>Sony 13.3” ePaper panel</h3>ePaper stands for electronic paper and resembles real paper with a matte looking surface and a very thin form factor.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sony13epaper-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sony13epaper-1.jpg" alt="Sony’s extremely flexible ePaper screen" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sony’s extremely flexible ePaper screen</i></p><br />Sony’s new 13.3” ePaper prototype is one of the most remarkable we have seen to date.
