Prime View International

Prime View International (PVI), Amazon’s Kindle display maker, claims that his company will deliver new e-reader displays this year that will include color, be flexible and feature touchscreens.

PVI Chairman Scott Liu said that touch-capable e-book readers’ share of the market will increase significantly in 2010, and PVI is developing pressure touch sensors that can be placed behind the screen – rather than the conventional touch panel added on top of the screen – to avoid reducing transmittance.

For EPDs that support animation, the response time of e-book readers was too slow to support animation in the past, but improvements have been made and products with animation support will hit the market in 2010, Liu said.

In addition, Amazon bought TouchCo weeks ago, possibly the best multi-touch technology available in the market.

Thanks to these news, we can say a multitouch Kindle will arrive sometime this year and the awaited color Kindle will arrive problably in 2011, when this new technology will be fully integrated into the kindle.
