Qualcomm planning to license Mirasol display technology

We've made it perfectly clear for a long time that Mirasol displays are something that we want to see in devices sooner rather than later, but each time the news comes out, it seems like those devices are farther and farther away...

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.
