It's coming from Pixel Qi. There were some videos posted on here a while ago with Pixel Qi staff demonstrating the screen. One of the comments they make is that the contrast isn't as good as eInk yet.
I think the videos were from the beginning of this year. Maybe they have improved it since then, or maybe the videos were made before the PR department got involved.
You're right though, user reviews will tell the real story.
