Display for their Apple iPhone 5 & 5S Accessory

CAMBRIDGE, England, September 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Plastic Logic has entered into an exclusive strategic partnership with
popSLATE for their new Apple iPhone Always-On 4 second screen display
Plastic Logic and popSLATE are pleased to announce that, following a joint
development programme, the first product will be an accessory for the Apple
iPhone 5 and 5S, incorporating a secondary electrophoretic display (EPD) from
One of the product's key features is the display: daylight readable,
shatterproof, ultra-thin and ultra-lightweight. EPD technology is 'always-on'
in the sense that an image is retained and power only required to write a new
image. Plastic Logic's market leading flexible EPD technology combines their
unique plastic OTFT backplane with reflective frontplane technology from E
Ink™. These benefits mean this technology is ideally suited to applications
such as the high growth market for smart mobile accessories.
popSLATE has pioneered the smartphone Always-On Experience by embedding
Plastic Logic's EPD display into the phone case. In combination with the
popSLATE app, users can customise their case with the images they love, create
dashboards with the information they need, and use their favourite apps in an
entirely new, at-a-glance, context-aware manner. popSLATE is also working with
leading artists to create dynamic content channels, so users can 'pop' a
myriad of stunning images to the backs of their phones.
"As the innovators in the space, popSLATE has created a dynamic new product
category and we are incredibly focused on building the best possible product
for our users," explains popSLATE CEO Yashar Behzadi. "Plastic Logic's
solution uniquely meets our product's demanding design requirements. Working
together, our two companies are building the lightest, most durable, and
thinnest ePaper second screen solution in the world."
"We're pleased that, after rigorous testing, popSLATE has endorsed our display
technology as being the one that meets the requirements for their innovative
product. Our flexible EPD technology is proving ideal for smartphone accessory
applications, and we are glad to be working with popSLATE in this market",
said Plastic Logic CEO Indro Mukerjee .
