The size of the investment does raise some eye brows. The Russian company is willing to invest so much in an ailing company in a very competitive industry? I have to see how this would go in the future.

This is a good news to see that people other than US and China are investing huge amount of money to hi-tech stuff. The technology seems interesting and it is addressing two of the key problems with current TFT display - power consumption and flexibility.

Thank you Peter for clarifying...yes, Plastic Logic technology will offer full color display that might displace existing B&W readers...Kris

@eewiz As I remember the display was based on the E Ink electrophoretic technology, the same as Kindle and other e-readers...the difference was an organic active matrix backplane to drive the display. Plastic Logic was, and presumably still is, expecting to progress to full color display, but as this is on the E Ink (now PrimeView International) agenda that could well have been based on E Ink.

The scale of this investment is amazing but frankly it is an order of magnitude required to make a truly innovative technology a reality...a few millions here & there will typically not cut it, I have seen so many companies limping around trying to make something happen on a shoe string budget...I got familiar with Plastic Logic technology 5 years ago and was very impressed with it. Good luck guys, the world needs you, my eyes are tired from looking at my laptop display...Kris

300m$ initially & total investment of 700m$!!!!:). I have to say the numbers are unprecedented. That too in a company which attempted to do an ebook reader when their core competency was display! Peter, Do you know how there display compares with other paper displays like E-ink/Qcom Mirasol /PixelQi ?

Plastic Electronics is a developing branch of electronics, the product form of this branch is plastic displays and solar cells, it will be a great investment by the Russians even though the time period of getting returns will be longer enough.
