Your 12" laptop also has pretty white whites and pretty black blacks, and the ability to smooth fonts without rendering them weak and almost unreadable. EPDs like E-Ink have no such advantage.
If they can jack up their resolution to approach print, they can probably get by with their weak contrast. If not, they need more contrast to compensate.
The main reason I dislike E-Ink is not speed or color, but basic black and white contrast and readability. It's just not good enough yet.
