PVI is also working to deploy E Ink to render text on devices other than e-readers, Scott Liu says. Imagine a device the size of a credit card with a small screen that runs on E Ink technology and can be used for more than two years on a single battery charge. That is the future, Liu says, and other products could include smart cards, mobile phones and so-called “smart surfaces,” which will have multi-touch interfaces that allow several users to work on one device at the same time.

Dan’s got a couple of quotes from me in the article regarding E Ink’s competition.
