The Samsung flexible LCD that CNet reports on may not seem huge at 7 inches, but keep in mind, it's for portable applications, and who wants an e-book that is bigger than a paperback?  It might not be an OLED screen, but it is very flexible, and it does colours!

"Samsung Electronics has created a flexible LCD screen that measures 7 inches diagonally, another technology that may one day be used in products such as e-books.


The display is functionally similar to the LCD (liquid crystal display) panels used inside TVs and notebooks, but with a crucial difference. Instead of containing glass substrates, the screen features a substrate of flexible plastic, allowing the display to bend. The plastic will not break when flexed, according to Samsung, and its pliancy paves the way for flexible color screens.


The new screen, which sports a resolution of 640 pixels by 480 pixels, has twice the surface area of another prototype shown off in January. "
