Qualcomm recently revealed that it has begun manufacturing the first wave of its power-efficient mirasol displays. Mirasol display work differently than normal LCDs in that they don't emit their own light, rather they reflect the light surrounding it via moving mirrors. The mirsaol display only draws power to move the mirrors, and this makes them highly efficient. Qualcomm said it expects the first wave of products to incorporate the full-color mirasol displays should be in the market by the end of 2009.
