Certainly it's not, but the point I was making is that B&W eInk screens are now pretty good. The Triton "colour" screen is extremely poor.

Other Triton devices (such as the Jetbook Color) have been poorly received.
What do you mean by "colour mask placed on top of a normal black and white eInk device"? How does that work?
It seems you are saying that this is nothing special, just a rather cheap trick..

It works exactly like it sounds it does - it's a colour filter on top of a B&W eInk screen. If the eInk below the filter is black, you don't see the colour; if it's white, you do. Just like an LCD display, except that it's front-lit, rather than back-lit.

Do a Google search for "eInk Triton" for more information.
