Another question would be how reflective is RLCD compared to e-ink (how high the contrast)? How good are the viewing angles? (I think at the beginning of the video, when she is holding the tablet at various angles, you can see that the screen gets quite dark as soon as the light does not shine directly onto it.)
You are right, the viewing angles aren't as good as on eink. That being said, I'd be willing to sacrifice it for the screen refresh rate. It'd be interesting to see if they can further improve the viewing angles.
