I imagine the input for screen/output from hardware is going to be totally different unless the screen uses some kind of standard interface...

whoops, made some typos and looked up the eink triton display for reference.

E-Ink pearl needs...
number of pixles x 4 bits (16 shades) worth of information to display an image

E-Ink Triton needs...
number of pixels x 12bits (4096 colors) + 4bits (16 shades) worth of information to display an image

so, more information, may mean more pins/solder connections required for the device to communicate information to the screen. That being said, I have no idea what the components of the m92 are like and this is just a wild guess.
