And here's the rub: my phone doesn't make it easy to set out a "do-not-disturb" setting when I'm reading, and a "please-interrupt-me" setting when I'm sitting in a dull meeting. Because my phone and tablet do a bunch of activities besides reading, their very multifunction nature makes them distracting to use while reading. Or I can spend 2 minutes turning off the notifications I don't want while I'm reading, and then another 2 minutes when I'm done. But heaven help me if I forget to turn the notifications back on!

And no setting can overcome the migraine-inducing glare when reading my tablet in a well-lit space.

What I'd really like to see is an eInk cell phone.
