Having a few dozen segments vs close to a million pixels certainly does simplify the electronics a lot (the cpu, the driver), but i'll bet it's a tiny fraction of a $350 price tag. Every dollar is very significant for a $30 phone, of course, but I think it's not the main reason motorola was able to afford eink and window shoppers at Borders can't.
