Night reading lamp - panel

I've just came to this

Night Vision Reading 3-LED Book Light Panel

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.44948

(and actually I also made order )

Does anybody have practice with similar lamps? (I hardly remember something like this was implemented to SONY e-reader)

Anyone know how the E-INK display is encased? Is it transparent with a film on the back? Can it be modded to add a backlight assembly? Or mabye some electroluminescent film? I'm guessing it's too tight in there, from what I have seen.

Also surprised nobody has made custom front panels yet that have led lights built in (like 4) that piggyback off of the kindle's main battery (it's 3.7v isn't it?). It's not hard to pop off the antenna cap and replace the front panel, they could just put a small switch on the side of the front panel or something for the lights. This would be good solution, no running around with an oversized light protruding about.

I already have this one. It is not bad, but I had to made small lamp-shade as the light was so wide, so my wife ordered me to go out of the bedroom as she could not sleep.

The backing is basically just a glass mirror (unfortunately). The only way that I know of to light up the display is by illuminating the edges of the panel.
