This is it, the revolutionary LCD screen by Pixel Qi that turns your netbook into a Kindle by the flip of a switch. As you can see in this video, thanks to Pixel Qi technology, your next LCD screens can now be very usable outdoors as well under the sunlight, in a very high resolution black and white mode and also keep a full color and bright back light indoors mode.
This is a demonstration from the first batch of the first working prototypes of this screen, and as you can see, it already looks amazing. Mass production of these screens are planned to be launched soon and should be available in any netbook (and later other devices such as smartphones) as long as the manufacturers decide that they want to integrate it in their products.

Hanvon shows a 5" touchscreen E-Ink E-Book reader device. The size of the screen I think could be perfect for the device to be pocketable, if they can just remove all the unecessary screen bezel before the release of this product. The touchscreen feature using the special stylus has also a huge potential in terms of building software features for it once the device is connected to the Internet using WiFi or HSDPA, to enable readers to collaborate online on editing texts, on commenting and building communities of handwritten annotations around texts. A USB or Bluetooth keyboard could then be connected to enter typed annotations as well.
