Based on the November update's comment thread, a PineReader project was abandoned. While the PineTab will help further such a venture ($100 full computing device for reading, right?), I would suggest revisiting the idea when the company CLEARink makes their screens more widely available for projects.

They are a next generation epaper solution which boasts color and video on epaper ideas. While their displays have a slightly shorter battery life than the epaper we are familiar with, it is still drastically lower than an LCD display. They have also stated before they expect their screens to be cheaper than current epaper technology due to a simplification in the hardware from current epaper tech.
I hope for the future of new display technology too Smile.

But lets first make the Pinetab a success and let us as community create a great touchscreen experience with a good ebook (comic) reader for tablet use. We can then always replace a lcd display for a eink screen as prototype.

I myself hope for a >=10" eink reader with reading lights, to be able to read pdfs ; besides epub and cbr
