No effect from Samsung quitting e-paper business, says E Ink

Samsung logoCommenting on Samsung Electronics' recent decision to quit the e-paper business, electrophoretic display (EPD) maker E Ink Holdings (EIH) noted that although Samsung is one of the company's clients, its business only contributes a small portion of E Ink's revenues and its action will not affect the company significantly.

EIH said that companies often change their plans based on their own competitiveness or market conditions, and EIH does not comment on its clients' or potential clients' strategies or operations.

Samsung has indicated that it will focus on developing TFT-LCD panels for mobile reading devices.

Samsung launched the 6-inch E6 and 10-inch E101 e-book readers in January, both using EIH's EPD solutions. But its market share has been low due to a lack of content support, market sources noted.

The launch of Apple's iPad has generated concerns about the future of e-paper-based e-book readers, EIH said. But the sales of the iPad has shown that it impacts more on the netbook and tablet PC markets than on the e-book reader market, EIH noted.

EIH emphasized that prolonged reading using TFT-LCD products will cause eye fatigue, while e-paper products will not.
