Found on Wired.com: Samsung Phone Shows Off E Ink, Split Personality

Quote:
All the keys are clear plastic with E Ink behind them -- the same tech that forms text on the screen of the Amazon Kindle. But unlike the Kindle, these keys are backlit. (Hear that Amazon? Backlighting can be done.)

....

E Ink keyboard morphs button layouts when switching from phone to messaging device.

It cannot be backlit if it is e-ink. It could be side-lit, though.

I guess the genius at Wired didn't realize that the light can be behind the clear plastic keys but not behind the Eink film.

It's the keys that are lit.

I saw it a few weeks ago. If it were to be available in Europe, I'd buy it without a second thought... But it uses a network that's not compatible with ours...
