There is a huge market out there, but unless plenty of money is put into the development of such devices we are in a dead end street.
But I am sure it will happen soon ...
This has become generally true thanks to the extreme digital consumerism, alhough it's particularly true with ereaders.
The huge market is the educational one, but no company other than enTourage* developed something with in mind the REAL educational contexts and practices
. They seem to know or care absolutely nothing about education, and how do they pretend to enlarge existing ereaders just to apparently fit the edu field? It's ridiculous. For edu you need DIFFERENT devices than "standard but bigger" e-paper readers.
*I consider the edge like a first attempt in the right direction, not a ready device for schools.
