Tablet power consumption will not be significantly different. One of the convenient "cheats" of e-ink devices was that the screens were so slow that it was safe and economically wise to put significantly underpowered processors behind them. However, even with those processors, the most optimistic projections for Pixel Qi power consumption (they hope to reach 100 milliwatts draw) will still be more double the consumption of even jetBook's LCD. Currently it's more than ten times that in reflective mode, if I recall.
