I think the Kyobo will become a collector's item as it represents the very first adoption of a radically different display technology.
The most recent Mirasol displays shown at trade shows are supposed to have less washed out colors than the Kyobo, as well as faster refresh rate.

Cost is a problem, as expected with an entirely new technology. But for a ereader+, its seem a likelier line of advance than eInk.
