Kyobo eReader with new Mirasol® display technology

I've bought it in Korea.
It's good that it has English too, not Korean only... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMOCpIPlArk

New Mirasol tech:

Display is VERY COOL! Nice colors, fast enough and very good readable without backlight (more accurately - it is a SIDElight), the battery lifetime must be longer than in eInk displays (stated in some sources as 20-400% less energy consumption) and a LOT longer than in plain Android LCDs... But it has a good backlight for night-reading too...
Some sluggish reaction to touches - but I think it is a customized Android problem, or some sensor defects... It is a first device with Mirasol, some defects or glitches in the first devices are normal thing nowadays...

I have not tried yet to install applications or a plain Android on it - but even in this state it is relatively well usable...

Sorry my English...
