Coming Soon! Plastic Displays!

Not really soon, more like a couple of years. CNet reports that Plastic Logic has raked in a considerable amount of venture capital money that will allow them to have flexible displays, and presumably other neat stuff too, on the shelves and in your grubbly little hands in a bit. Vaporware? Doesn't look like it. We hope not.
"Plastic Logic's "take anyway, read anywhere" flexible display for text and images is intended as a lightweight alternative to paper and to current laptop, phone and PDA screens. The company, which attracted $100 million in a new round of venture capital funding, has developed displays designed to allow users a more comfortable way to view printed material. Plastic Logic plans to begin construction of manufacturing facilities as soon as possible, and plans to release its first products in 2009."
