Liquavista will likely lead Amazon to producing a full-color, low-power touchscreen for its Kindle line of e-readers. "We are always looking for new technologies we may be able to incorporate into our products over the long term. The Liquavista team shares our passion for invention and is creating exciting new technologies with a lot of potential. It's still early days, but we're excited about the possibilities and we look forward to working with Liquavista to develop these displays," an Amazon spokesperson said.
