Mirasol has shown gray scale and color photo's that look very nice. Straight on.

Mirasol, besides shifting color with angle, is an All or Nothing technology. Photos will be worthless on a Mirasol display. Rather like a white light hologram without the 3D effect. However, diagrams and text should be very nice. Since E-Ink can't do color yet, I think it may be a good trade off.

I have an AR bluetooth bridge which is mirasol based but it's black and white. I'm curious about the color quality.

I have been hoping to see a product which uses Mirasol. It's a good move for Taiwanese manufacturer. Taiwan indeed has been trying so many different products these days. What's up with American's corporation?

Yes - it is also far cheaper.

Mirasol is based on MEMS technology, which is totally different from E-ink. One downside for Qualcomm Mirasol is the viewing angle is poor. The color changes when the viewing angle varies.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
