Can you discuss whether or not it's a different screen from those of the iRiver Story HD and the Kindle Paperwhite?
Will it use plastic LG like or glass like the previous generation?
I'm pretty sure the LG screens are still Pearl-derived. My understanding is the substrate is different but the electrophoretic film is the same Pearl-class film from eink.
