E Ink: 'E-newspapers' to Go Commercial in late 2009

As noted on Engadget, and reported by Tech-On:

Quote:
Ryosuke Kuwata, E Ink Corp's vice president in charge of the Asia Pacific region, who is conducting market development for the company, revealed the worldwide advancement of the electronic newspaper project that newspaper companies are pursuing. (interviewer: Takuya Otani).
Quote:
Q: When are electronic newspapers likely to emerge in the market? And what terminals and services will they be like?

Kuwata: At the current moment, the newspaper company that is furthest ahead is expected to start a verification test using several thousands of terminals by the end of 2008. After the test, the company will gradually shift to a specific business in the second half of 2009, I expect.
I did not know that Hearst Corp. is developing its own terminal (E-Ink Reader?) in house, but see A rival of the Kindle e-reader is to come.
