In my personal opinion, Pearl technology is a bit overrated and overhyped these days. The improvements over the Vizplex panels are not that overwhelming. I recently had the chance to check out a Kindle 3 in the real life and compare it to my Pocketbook 903 and was pretty astonished how small the difference in viewing quality was. Yes it is true that on Pearl panels the text is a bit darker and slightly sharper and it is said in the whitepapers that the Pearl panels consume less energy. Of course, Pearl can also do faster page-turns.
Still, Vizplex is used on the majority of devices in production right now.
