It’s a grayscale electrophoretic display and offers almost 50% higher contrast ratios and around 20% less reflective than current Pearl displays. Most recent company to offer E-Ink's Carta displays is Amazon with latest Kindle Paperwhite e-reading tablet. With a new display technology called as "Regal Waveform" it would be an exciting experience to turn pages even more naturally.
New Carta display offers a modified contrast ratio that matches screen views to normal book or paper writing. As these displays will consume less power and great for readings, there will be minimum display issues while using a tablet as a reader such as an eye strain, flickering on a device or even problems due to constantly looking at current heavily bright tablet displays. The display will certainly provide wide viewing angles and will help in ease of reading.
