    Wow, that works out at over 600 euro.

    can you use that e-ink screen to read books ... I guess with the volume buttons, as all the controls are on the wrong side...

    I'm dead impressed with that, first properly useful feature for smart phones since a flash for the camera!

    Would like to know how well map apps like Oruxmaps are presented on the e-ink screen - would be really handy to be able to read an electronic map on a sunny day
    If Oruxmaps worked and it was weatherproof, I wouldn't hesitate to get one.

    I really like this idea, I'm just not 600 EUR sure

    Ideally there would be a ARA module that adds this to the back of one of those new modular phones

    There is something very technically appealing about this phone, and the specifications aren't bad either.

    I can definitely see a future version having a dedicated low-power coprocessor for the eInk screen, or driving that entirely from the sensor hub SoC to save power.

    I would have to see the eInk screen in person to see how smoothly integrated it is into the device, the marketing makes it look nearly seamless...

    Yes - it can mirror the normal display so anything you can read on the other screen you can read on the e-ink.

    If you watch the video, the second screen looks like it's touch enabled.

    That's a terrible advert, it tells me next to nothing that they couldn't have got across in a few seconds.
