Default Inventec V112 With Mirasol Screen on Display At CTIA

"Well, Qualcomm owns Qualcomm MEMS Technologies, which has been pushing its mirasol display tech for several years now; the main draw is that it's super high-contrast which eliminates the need for a backlight in many situations where a traditional LCD would need a little help, and the WinMo-powered V112 uses a small mirasol strip as a secondary display surrounded by nav controls. Even though we weren't getting any Windows Mobile action, we did manage to engage the mirasol display (also known as "the cool part") where we saw an example of what the V112 might be able to do without turning on the battery-destroying LCD up top: show basic status information and the current time."

We first talked about the V112 and it's secondary mirasol display a couple of months back. Engadget managed to snag a quick hands-on with the smartphone during CTIA, and had mixed feelings about the display - it works as advertised, but has little tactile feedback. WMExperts also managed to get some time with the V112, and unlike Engadget managed to access the full screen as well. In short, mirasol shows some promise - but let's get some colour action, shall we?
