LG has announced it has started mass production of its electronic paper display (EPD) product, with a planned launch in Europe next month.

LG's EPD is a 6-inch (15.24-centimetre), 1024×768 e-ink plastic screen. It's 0.7mm thick, it weighs 14 grams and LG claims it's resistant to scratches and drops from a 1.5 metre height.

Of course, its biggest claim to fame is its flexibility: LG claims the screen allows bending at a range of 40 degrees from its centre.

"With the world's first plastic EPD, LG Display has once again proven its reputation for leadership and innovation with a product we believe will help greatly popularise the e-book market," said Sang Duck Yeo, Head of Operations for LG Display's Mobile/OLED division.

LG said the EPD would first be supplied to ODM companies in China, with completed products hitting European shores at the beginning of April.
