E-ink Holdings, the parent company of the screen manufacturer, announced today that they say a dip in revenues last month.
Total revenue for Novelber was NT$3.57 billion (US$118.11 million), which is up 9% over last November but down 33% from October. Lukcily, revenue for the year is up 71% over 2010, to NT$36.84 billion.
I wouldn’t read too much into this; E-ink dominates the market for eReader screens and owns the rights to one of the lest LCD screens on the tablet market (FFS, from the E-ink sub Hydis). The company is bound to stay highly profitable when its revenue growth picks up again next month.
The FFS screen is used on a number of premium tablets as well as the Kobo Vox, NookColor, and the original 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab. It’s only real competition among screen tech is the IPS screen, which uses different technology but offers similar high quality, high resolution screens.
