Garmin handheld display
Authored by: yrn1 on Sep 20, '07 10:53:16AM

The Garmin handheld GPS's displays are about the best example of transflective displays. With moderate daylight or even at dawn, you can still clearly read the display without backlight.

I guess they can't really use this for laptop screens, because it'd be quite difficult to get the colors correct. But since I hardly use my iBook for photo/video editing, I'd trade it for a transflective display any time. That should be an incredible boost for battery life!
