That's good! The current commercial ePaper products are all grayscale-but the pixel density is also important for legibility; I'm not sure that 768 x 1024 pixels in an eight-inch screen is enough.

Fujitsu's e-paper boasts flexibility, low weight and energy consumption and color displays.

E-paper holds the promise of becoming a truly versatile medium that is lightweight, portable and low-power. It is easier on the eyes than regular LCD or CRT screens because it is viewed with reflected light and not backlighting or light emissions.

Since, it is bi-stable, power is used only to change the display content. The image is preserved when the power is off, so the device is very energy-efficient. click the link below for pictures.
