It’s a intriguing idea, and I’m kind of surprised we haven’t seen more special purpose e-ink and LCD-based devices for specific tasks like this.

That said, this device retails for $1,600 and initial reviews haven’t been positive. Not surprisingly, the issue that really kills a lot of specialty devices like this is the software rather than the hardware.
