It seems the biggest concern for that market is the rumor of the 7x9 iPiod rather then the current crop of e-ink devices.
Kill them? not exactly.

What it will do is force stogy old companies to compete with ever more new blood by lowering the barriers. The same as with music, video entertainment and books.

It could also crash the collectors market (which Marvel, DC, Image, Etc. get not cut of) if the mainline companies sell their back issues online at a price the public is willing to pay.

Color is needed, really I haven't seen black and white do well in recent decades, except for Love and Rockets which is sort of a noir lesbian soap opera thing. With fast enough page turns, I suspect that we could see new form factors experimented with - Perhaps stories told in panels of the now standard six inch form factor.

It will be fun to watch. It could also drain my fanboi bank account if they put back stock up at a good price.
