Recent innovations in the field of organic electronics are enabling the production of ultra-thin highly flexible active-matrix system-on-plastic electrophoretic displays. A plastic display is a thin and flexible that can be rolled up in a tube and displays on plastic also offer a solution to both the area and thickness problems. The display can be unrolled to a size that is considerably larger than the telephone displays, are robust, and do need the additional protection essential for display on glasses. Original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are planning to form the core of a pen-like bluetooth enabled device that serves as an add-on display for a data carrier and can also be integrated in the data carrier itself into the side of mobile telephone where the screen could display e-mail, SMS test, office documents, newspapers, and books. Organic electronics offer various advantages that can be used for cost-effective deposition.
