LG is developing a type of flexible e-paper that we could see in a new line of e-readers, tablets, and even electronic newspapers. According to an SEC filing, the company expects to start mass-producing 9.7-inch color e-paper and 19-inch flexible e-paper.

Vinita Jakhanwal of iSuppli told IDG News the 9.7-inch color e-paper could potentially be used in a new generation of e-readers and mobile devices. But he warned it could make them more costly and reduce battery life.

The 19-inch flexible e-paper would be monochrome, and Jakhanwal said it could be used in e-reader devices the size of newspapers.
