All expense ePaper junk
ePaper is junk, it is way too expensive, monochrome, and uses more power than other low power displays, like OLED, for each frame change. so useless for animation/video; also all current eBooks have pathetic storage capacity, and most lack SDHC support.
Haven't these muppets heard of colour publications; not all books contain just words, and many maps are unusable without colour.
I wonder why mp3 players became popular? Was it because I could play one album at a time, like cassette/CD players? NO! It was because I gained the capacity to could carry several albums, even my entire collection of albums, so all I had to do was add new albums and make play lists, no more albums inaccessible at home.
Give me a rugged, sub-£100 Colour OLED device with expandable storage, and a 10" touchscreen, so that they can be used as casually as shown in Star Trek TNG etc, and I'd probably buy several! The device I describe could even do double-duty as a 'frame' for an image or document, or as a notice.
For now I'll carry on carrying and using my MUCH CHEAPER, and more capable, 10" 'netbook'.
