Actual usable ebook reader with electronic paper may show up any day now.

One step closer to The Diamond Age.

Even being conservative e-paper should revolutionize display technology as volume goes up and costs come down. super low-power applications, flexibility, compactness and high resolution ought to enable the placement of digital displays on virtually any object.

Crapy proprietary e-book readers are just the start of course, as manufactureing ramps up and margins shrink all sorts of devices will start to feature displays made out of this stuff...

watches for sure.
