I think you answered your own question ... its up in the specs you listed and that I excerpted above. However, this is the one 'promise' that makes me doubtful about their ability to deliver.

I would love to see touch screen annotation in a book reader for reading professional books. However, I'm not sure that the state of the technology is ready. After reading comments on the current touch screen e-ink devices my take is that e-ink today simply can't refresh fast enough for a natural feeling touchscreen annotation. I think that touch screen would require either non-eink or a faster generation of eink.

So, I'm looking for comments from others. My comments are based on second hand observations from this board. What do you think, is touch screen annotation ready for prime time? Maybe with the epson controller?
