Certainly a good thing. But I wonder how viewing angle and contrast compares to e-ink. Personally, I've had several reflective non-back-lit devices in the day and I found the text to be less readable than e-ink devices given identical ambient lighting.
This is one of those conclusions that goes to one's subjective take on it. I have both a jetBook and a number of e-ink devices. I personally perfer e-ink over TFT.
One is not "better" than the other; it's what one perfers.
