It really sounds like a reading device for people who haven't (yet) read ebooks on phones, PCs, or dedicated devices...
Libraries may have a use for it as part of a turnkey system but anybody who's used a Kindle or a Kobo (to say nothing of Pocketbook, Boox, etc) is just going to be frustrated with the overall user experience.
