I think most of that was intentional.

Yeah, they should have chosen anything other than Cosmopolitan as the sample image.

Oh, im sure it was. sex sells. Even when it makes no sense to associate it to a product.  But being who i am i didnt even notice the actual content, i just noticed the colors.. tech first :)    But then i noticed the price..  arrgh.     I guess there is now an 8" version. Which i think for most things the best size, but its 500+   

Perhaps in a generation or 2 the price would be justifiable, but having a 6", the Gen 1 color devices have a use case, but are not quite ready to replace a grey scale ink device for general use.

I took a look - they are interesting devices, and, as the prices fall, my interest rises.  My Galaxy Tab is overkill for taking notes and reading ePUB books.  This could be a lighter, more energy-efficient way of reading on a larger (than my phones) device without needing a full-blown mobile OS (even though they do use Android) and a 5G connection.  Note-taking, depending on how the screen feels and the application they use, could be a better experience.  I find that the softer screens that these e-ink devices use are easier to write on (for me).

For me, i dont like reading on LCD, it wears out my eyes after enough time with the constant glow. E-ink is a world of difference. Its a totally different technology.  I was a super early adopter.  However, until now if i needed color, LCD was it.  Now there is a widely availble option. ( previous attempts at color a few years ago, was mostly in Russia, and was not very good )

Note that not all use android. PB for example is their own OS.  But, its a reader, not a tablet replacement of any kind so i dont see that being a big deal.  I hear people complain all the time " refresh rate is too slow .. bla bla.   cant watch a video"  um, no, you cant, to buy a tablet instead and watch your cat videos.. 

For writing, you can get various screen protectors with different textures. 

 

( and i still think its funny i was trying to make what became e-eink, back in the 80s..   using static electricity to move ink droplets around to make a display..  same basic concept . another missed boat for me :) )
