Qualcomm planning to license Mirasol display technology

Always nice to see new innovative technology!
Battery life, being the Achilles heel of most high-end phones and tablets nowadays, will definitely benefit from this technology, assuming that eInk manufacturing processes will bleed into these new displays.
But it will most likely take a while for this to go main stream, as there are a ton of hurdles OEM's must cross if they choose to adopt this screen tech (Refresh rates. color saturation/accuracy, battery drain) and integrate it inline with current hardware and software conventions.

Mirasol is well suited for eReaders. The color is just too bad for phones and tablets.

Mirasol is a MEMS based technology.
At most, you can call it a "reflective" display, but most certainly not "transflective".
Mirasol display does not have a BLU and therefore does not possess the "transmissive" state.
Please do better technical research when writing your article.
