thanks Alexander, very interesting info !

Some of the things mentioned in the video which caught my attention :
- he estimates color and video in e-ink screens will arrive within 2 to 3 years.
- notetaking capabilities are planned for future generations (but no details, he doesn't say whether this will be via a keyboard or touchscreen).
- they also plan to make larger devices which are oriented to professional clients specifically for A4 or A3 pdfs with a lot of diagrams, such as are frequently used by aéronautic industry.
- next focus (after ebooks) : e-newspapers. he also mentions that european publishers are dragging their feet when it comes to digitising their catalogues, so the irony is that the Gen3 is selling quite well in France / Europe but the content available is overwhelmingly anglophone, and he wishes european publishers would get on the train (don't we all...).
