    With all the rumors floating around about the mini iPad, people saying it doesn't make sense, others for it, the popularity of the iBooks store, what Tim Cook said about getting even more secretive about their strategies, maybe even feeding a false rumor, and this one year old patent all lead to rather the kindle e-ink killer?

    I don't see Apple ever releasing an e-ink device.

    Oy vey... It would be physically impossible to make eInk translucent!

    Now contrary to seemingly popular belief, "electronic paper" is not just another term for eInk. It actually refers to any technology that possesses high contrast with ambient light and uses little to no power. Therefor eInk is only one type of electronic paper technology.
