My smart phone doesn't tell me when there is email. The are only three distractions I allow on my smart phone.

1. Phone calls. If I was reading my e-reader and my cell phone rang, I would answer it anyway so it is no more of a distraction.

2. Scheduled appointments. If it is time to meet someone I WANT to be notified. So again, no issue here.

3. Texts. I hardly use texts. My wife might send me one to let me know where to meet her. More efficient and less of a distraction than a phone call.

The Internet, video and Angry Birds don't reach out and make me play or interrupt me while I am reading - I control that.

When I can have a color e-ink iPad Mini, I will stop using a dedicated e-reader. But I like the e-ink and I don't see that preference changing. I'd prefer only having one device that could do everything if the perfect device existed, though.

Yeah, me too.
Of course, I'd want two of them....

It wouldn't be perfect if there wasn't something I could find fault with!

It reminds me of a quote, "A house divided against itself cannot stand."
Amazon has both e-ink and tablets. lol.

Well, this implies that Amazon is waging war with themselves - that their tablets and eInk readers are at odds. In fact, I think they are serving two different markets of readers. But the readers/tablets aren't what they're really selling; they sell those very close to cost. Their goal is to get you to buy Amazon digital content, like Kindle Books, MP3s, Instant Videos, etc. The Kindle Books must be a lucrative market by itself, because they keep making those eInk readers and trying to make them better.

But not even they see much market for large eInk readers, alas. Kindle DX, we hardly knew ye

E Ink makes a beautiful 2400x1650 9.7" 300(!) DPI Pearl screen but nobody uses it. Probably because nobody (well, except a very few nutters with too much disposable income like me ) would pay what a reader with it would have to cost...
