Telecom Italia and Polymer Vision announce the “Cellular Book”
Telecom Italia is planning to co-develop and market in Italy the world’s first rollable display enabled personal device for digital content distribution. Polymer Vision will participate on this development and market the device in the rest of the world

The terminal will be presented to the Industry at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona from February12th. The device uses the Polymer Vision rollable display technology which enables mobile devices to incorporate a display larger than the handset itself and offers a readability similar to printed paper.

The product follows up on the rollable display technology based concept device Readius presented by Polymer Vision less than 18 months ago at the IFA Consumer Electronics Trade Fair in Berlin.

While smaller than a typical mobile phone, the new device features a display which extends up to 5-inches and may simply be stored away after use by folding it, thanks to the flexibility of the polymer based display material. The device features the largest display available in the industry for the same form factor, the 16 grey levels combined with a high contrast and high reflectivity display for paper like reading experience enables comfortable reading, even in bright sunlight. Future developments include colour and moving image capable display.

The rollable display enables reading entire newspapers as well as books that can be delivered and bought through a mobile network and then stored in the terminal’s memory which will start from 4 Gigabytes available in the first models.

Combined with mobile services, the device will permit instant access to personalised data, e-mail, news, information feeds and location sensitive maps wherever and whenever. The always-on user experience is made possible through an optimised combination of cellular (EDGE/UMTS) and broadcast (DVB-H IP data-casting) mobile functionalities as well as a mini-USB slot for PC and wired/wireless broadband data connection.

Featuring single-handed navigation and control via an innovative touch sensitive LED user interface, the new device is designed to deliver up to 10 days of average usage time between battery charges.
