LCDs and OLEDs and E-Ink, Oh My!

I was reading an article about how campers want to take their media, including TV, with them into nature. And that article prodded me to think a little bit more about portable video products. The ideal video product for campers:
  • is lightweight,
  • is small when packed away but still has a large screen when used,
  • has long play time.
You can think about a lightweight screen that you roll up and transport in a poster tube. Just unfurl the display and you're ready to watch video. This not-so-new concept would be the ultimate product for many uses though. Not just camping.

What type of display is best-suited for such a product? A Liquid Crystal Display (LCD), OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) Display or electronic ink (e-ink) display? I'm betting on OLED displays.
