Pixel Qi is showing off at Computex this week in Taipei, and Charbax just posted a detailed interview with Mary Lou Jepsen from the floor. Look for the "Qi" button at 0:25, and serious geeking out on the physics and fab process starting at 5:00... and for the rest of the video! (For a quicker soundbite, he also posted this side-by-side iPad / iPhone / 3Qi comparison video yesterday.)

Pixel Qi are having a good quarter. They are offering a variety of display options, including wide-view, anti-reflective coating, and a capacitive touchsreen. And they have started winning industry awards. More details, and a Notion Ink interview (they say their Adam tablet will release on time in a few months), after the jump.
- In April, the 3Qi screen won the The IEEE Spectrum's Emerging Technology ACE Award, honoring the year's new technology "with the greatest potential for financial success".
- Last week, it took second place in the Society for Information Display's "Display of the Year" awards (coming in first: a 47-in. 3D LCD by LG). And they and their first laptop partner, Notion Ink, have been drawing steady praise.
- Now they have lined up more partners, with Innoversal's Lattice tablet and a drawing slate (pen and touch-based) from AccuSee both sporting a capacitive 3Qi. (Note to manufacturers - keyboard-lovers want sunlight-readable displays too!)
