Interesting!

I'm wondering if they are going to continue to support the DRM'd ereader format or move to epub?

I sure hope that LCD turns off while reading.

Actually it appears to wrap around the device. Perhaps it also fits the other way, covering the screens when not in use?

interesting indeed.
I thought plastic logic made an announcement that B&N reader would not be in color e-ink screen, although they do have plans to produce a model later on.
from the pictures it does look like it will be in color ( look at the bottom menu part where books covers are in color.)

Just the bottom LCD part is in color - the reading screen is the regular eink gray scale.

So they're basically combining an ebook reader with elements from an iPod touch. I don't expect to see this thing for a penny less than $349, and probably closer to $399 (or more).

planned to be sold at less than the price of a Kindle

From the Gizmodo article, "image 5" blurb:

"Pricing is yet unknown, but no matter what, it was planned to be sold at less than the price of a Kindle, with the majority of revenue made up through book sales."

btw, this blurry pic look pretty real to me.
