Poke around the forum and look in the threads with 350, 650, and 950 in the subject line. Lots of us have 'em and love 'em.

from what I gather color eink would be a mirasol screen /display which is quite a ways off...
LCD screens as readers have their followers but the majority of core enthusiast prefer e-ink for it's weight, readability and power consumption.
The drawback with e-ink i.e. current gen shipping like the Pearl 16 shades of grey found in latest gen of sony.. it can't really handle fast screen refresh which what lcd can do.

But then you aren't going to be trying to watch video on an e-ink display, so the mildly strange looking page transitions are more entertaining - I'm still trying to figure out the whole 'lifecycle' of a transition and what its doing.

Sony releases their new readers around Sept/Oct every year. If they were to make a color screen I wouldn't expect it until this time next year.

Mirasol stated that they've shipped 5.7 in panels to manufacturers so we should see some devices most likely at CES 2011 then shipped early in the year. Sony may preview a device there and release it in Sep/Oct.
