This one would be very nice to put in the front of the base (to the side or between the SD slots), so it can be useful both with the lid open and with the lid closed:If I understood it correctly Shrps memory LCDs have nearly as low powerconsumption as the epaper Displays. The pepple has changed from epaper (prototypes and anounced for the kickstarter campaign) to memoryLCD (in production).
-plus it has backlite optioin by design
-plus it has serial interface (from what I understand, see below)
If we could get hands on one of these (no matter the size) and some of the somtware guys here can help, I'd like to try to build it into my old pandora...
35x11 mm should easily fit there. The display is 184x38 pixels, which should be enough to display two or three lines of text.
