I have been enthusiastic about the 13.3" ultra-light flexible E Ink Mobius based e-readers since I filmed the Sony DPT-S1 in January 2014 here: http://armdevices.net/2014/01/19/e-ink-booth-tour-at-ces-2014-sony-dpt-s1-smartwatches-wall-clocks-and-more/ and from Netronix in January 2015 and in June 2015. The folks at Goodereader are teaming up with a supplier to get the 13.3" E-reader available to Indiegogo backers for about $699 a piece at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/13-3-inch-android-e-reader/x/585198#/ I believe that the 13.3" E Ink E-reader form factor can be totally awesome, especially if real-time multi-user collaborative apps become very user friendly on this user interface.
