As a programmer, I would use it for work and fun. If it would have a detachable screen like Onyx Type Writer that would be awesome but even without it, this is simply a device I dreamed about for years now!

Be able to sit in a park and write text/code...

IT guys would not be limited to work only inside anymore! This is huge! It could change the paradigm of a computer guy that constantly sits in the basement/office! We sit in rooms because we have to due to lighting and screens, but with e-ink laptop this would change!

I'm dreaming now...

Awesome. But it probably will be terribly expensive and a small screen on top of that and I don't see anything in the article about it being released this year

Expense is no object if it has military or perhaps law enforcement applications.

If you read the original source you will see that it says:
Quote:
E-ink has teamed up with Sony Corp in a joint venture to develop a laptop product integrating its technology.
They didn't say it would be an E-ink laptop; for all we know they could have a design that uses an E-ink screen on the lid as a secondary screen - or uses tie E-ink screen in place of a keyboard.

Edit: and E-ink didn't say this, either; the article states it but doesn't say that it came from E-ink.

The syntax highlighting may not work too well with gray scale and scrolling / refresh may be too slow.

I think Mother's Day was a joke - there was a past thread about some exciting new product (I don't remember which one) that was supposedly going to come out on Mother's Day and never did.....

BadEReader are showing graphs of sales from Amazon of private label brands. Total crap as Amazon does not give out sales figures and they have not said where they got their fictitious numbers.
