Yeah those "half-a-dozen" partners that were about to be revealed both around CES and again at Computex turned out to be two small no-name startups that seem rather unlikely to deliver on anything. Way to wrangle in the big players. At least they did deliver on those expensive DIY kits, so there are a few people in the world with the early gen screens.
As far as being "easy on the eyes"...yes, and probably moreso, since it's viewable in any lighting condition. The reflective mode contrast is likely similar, though the white reflectance is not as high as that of the better EPDs, but then you can supplement with a low backlight setting to improve viewability and reduce eye fatigue in less-bright conditions.
