qualcomm-mirasol-5-inch-display.img_assist_custom-301x200.jpgFrom E-Ink-Info. We reported the delay here.

Two days ago we reported that Mirasol displays are delayed till early 2011. But that was not true: today we hear that Qualcomm is already producing panels and will start shipping them to OEMs this fall. But the release of devices that uses these displays is not expected before early 2011.

The 5.7″ XGA displays will be used in devices that look more like a tablet than an e-reader. In the future they also plan to produce smaller displays for smartphones. They did not comment about the $2 billion Mirasol plant.
