You think so? I rather get the impression the REB fans are primarily in the "if it doesn't have a backlight it's worthless" camp. That's certainly a viewpoint that's been rather, er, forcibly expressed in the past . These are people who don't WANT eInk because you can't read it in the dark.

One thing that makes it a "legacy device" is the fact that (as I understand) it uses SmartMedia cards for storage. I don't believe that SmartMedia cards are still made, even if the machine itself is.
