The one-man thread continues!

Found the website behind the company (Pixel Qi) that is behind this new display.

Nice little summary on the front page.  Here's what caught my interest.
- Mass production of color, backlit/non-backlit displays in 2009 Q4 (for netbooks presumably)!
- Potential for 1/2 to 1/4 less power consumption with back light off!
