The fact is that eInk ereaders turned out to be the great joke of CES 2010. The Chinese market sold 300,000 ereaders in 2009, but despite all the hopeful talk many makers, such as EDO and Foxit, had pulled out of the ereader market by the middle of 2010. Next year's craze will be tablets for web-browsing, not exactly a good fit for eInk, even with colour.

Hanvon's big enough that it can afford to take a punt on colour eInk, but they'll be lucky to cover their costs domestically.

The question here is whether the color is "good enough".
No. brecklundin's point was that he needed "accurate" colour.
