The E-ink technology also uses just a fraction of the energy typically needed for comparably sized screens, extending the device's battery life to between 60 and 80 hours.
For me personally, while I am interested in a bigger screen, they are really going to have to do better than that. And be more specific. 80 hours in standby mode? Or what?

E-Ink enthusiasts will likely have to wait until 2009 for color E-ink and as late as 2012 for video, says Russ Wilcox, the chief executive of Cambridge, Mass.-based E-Ink
That's okay, Russ, even if it turns out to be 2011 and 2014 respectively - that is about the time I plan on replacing my Sony if it doesn't break before that. I'm not so much interested in video but color would be nice.
