Front lit LCD display coming

I'm eagerly watching the screen developments, since it seems to me we have a lot of improvements yet to see over the next decade, in ease of reading, power use, etc.
For example a high-contrast, front-lit full-color display would be heaven. Best of both worlds.

The new display from Japan Display hardly seems high-contrast or high-color yet, but it is very low-power*, and it is front-lit, so it may point the way.

*It uses a tiny amount of static RAM in each pixel to hold the image so the pixel does not need to get a signal many times per second.  Very clever.
