Samsung Electronics halts e-paper production
By Lee Youkyung
SEOUL, Aug. 23 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co., Asia's largest maker of mobile phones and memory chips, said Monday that it has recently decided to withdraw from the electronic paper (e-paper) business due to cost issues.

The company, however, will not completely leave the market for electronic book (e-book) readers, and plans to launch next year an electronic reading device using a liquid crystal display (LCD) panel as a screen, according to the company's spokesman.
