Some quite interesting info there.

Peruvemba sits down at a clean table and pulls out a thin letter-sized sheet of steel with a sheet of Vizplex attached to it. Along two sides run a few row-and-column display drivers, the electronics that make the display work. He bends the sheet -- it won’t fold -- then puts it on the table. He pounds it with his fist. It doesn’t break. How unlike a computer. He says this is an engineering sample from a customer that will soon ship an e-newspaper built around it. “We are just weeks away from flexible displays,” he says.
...
Before the end of the year, another company -- that E-Ink won’t yet name -- should release an e-reader for textbooks, which will include illustrations, tables, and other graphics that are difficult to display on today’s e-readers.

Is he talking about 2009, or ahead to 2010 when he speaks of 'before the end of the year'? I really hope he's talking 09. I need one of those e-readers for textbooks. It really sounds like 09.

*keeping fingers crossed*

Good article, Thanks.
