E-inks strength is that it does mimic paper quite well. In a quest to make a color display I think the road is all uphill! End pricing is going to be a key issue. Who is going to buy an color capable e-reader device if it's not under $399 threshold. I then can purchase a net-book with a heck of a lot more features and hey - a newspaper and paperback is less than ten bucks! Once e-ink and the like can produce color then consumer expectations are going to be much higher! Will there be improved latency in page turns and will it be video capable; have sound; web capable? My god it's going to be looking more like the Apple iPad! Don't think the consumers aren't going to demand such features. Anyone still watching B/W television? IT'S DULL BY comparison! I am surprised no mention of the work by PlasticLogic. They have been around it seems like forever and finally made last year's CES. Unfortunately like most of the e-reader devices, they are all stuck on "Kindle" mode. BORING! Where did all the Applications Specialists go?
