May 26, 2012 here: The iPad Mini Will Mean The Death of eInk
Well that’s not going to happen now. Not at $329.
Not with Barnes & Noble cutting the price of the Nook with GlowLight:
Besides, does the iPad Mini have these?
Yes! Angry Birds covers will save the Nook brand!
And a travel stand:
Hm, will that work with the iPad Mini too?
At any rate, eInk is bound to suffer more damage from cheap Android tablets than from the iPad Mini at that $329 price.
No one can really carry around a $329 tablet in a carefree way. It’s cheaper to replace a $99 Nook Simple Touch or $119 Nook with GlowLight. Or a cheap eInk Kindle or Kobo.
So eInk isn’t dead yet.
