I'm not sure I'd say "rubbish," but there are definitely things that don't work well on eInk devices at the moment. I don't think it makes sense to pretend otherwise. However, color eInk should resolve most of those issues.
Otherwise, a 6" screen is a 6" screen; if that size of display doesn't work for what you're reading, a 6" tablet won't improve that particular aspect.
