Alas No. The problem is one of contrast. Eink state that their Pearl screen has a contrast range of 10:1. A printed page would run closer to 50:1 depending on the paper and the surface. I would be quite happy with a colour display that would duplicate the colour that you see on somewhat white newsprint. Not good enough for a book of photographs but good enough to use colour as part of the book design and layout. Again, think of the difference between a colour print and a colour slide.
