I'm curious as to what effect video-refresh speeds will have on battery life (one of the big sellling points of e-ink).

If most of the battery savings over, say a 60Hz LCD come from the bistable nature of e-ink, what effect will updating the e-ink at 60Hz have?

The crispness of the display might still be a benefit, but it sort of seems like this defeats the purpose of e-ink.

(BTW, what's the correct way to write about the e-ink technology vs. E Ink, Inc?)
