Qualcomm to license, not build, future Mirasol displays

The Digital Reader's Nate Hoffelder reports that Qualcomm has announced that it will license, rather than manufacture, the next generation of its color Mirasol displays. Hoffelder writes that the Mirasol display was difficult to manufacture, which led to high prices that made devices using the displays uncompetitive. It's unlikely that other companies will license the display, given Qualcomm's problems and the rapid market transition to tablets with LCD- and OLED-based displays.
