Don't have to worry about breaking the screen... but how's the battery life?
I'm reliably informed that the screen will retain data for over 5,000 years. So battery life isn't a problem.

Refresh rate is the main drawback.

Maybe the big news is that they have adopted clay tablets as the reading medium of choice?
Ah, but is it a backlit clay tablet?

You can't backlight clay silly.

Says they're giving out prizes again. Count me out. I couldn't win a boobie prize if I were the only person entered.

If dropped, clay tablets can break (see, e.g., Moses coming down mountain with 15 commandments). But styluses shouldn't be expensive. Reading them at night though, I don't know.

They'd likely have a matte finish (no glare) and you could likely make a hole to attach your favourite light, so night reading shouldn't be too bad (although contrast might suffer from shadowing so maybe not ).
