Yeah, no color because the black and white eink is too slow.
You need a much faster refresh rate to see color on a black and white display:
EDIT: Back when color TV was very rare, Coca Cola showed a flickery advertisement during a Superbowl game (extremely popular televised American Football game), that was filmed using the Benham illusion, and so many people were shocked to see color video on their black and white TVs that it overloaded the long distance telephone networks with people calling the TV networks. This illusion is also sometimes called "subjective color" because the amount of color seen varies greatly between individual people. Some people can see bright colors, and others none at all. Personally, I see Dark-Blue, Brown-Red, and a Tan (dark yellow) color.
P.S. Although the applet at the above link lets you adjust the speed, the "standard" speed for subjective color is 10 Hz (which is also the blink frequency that can trigger seizures in people with epilepsy, so please do not try this if you have epilepsy. Thanks.
