This display _very_ cool, I saw an OLPC in action a few weeks ago.
It is not even limited to direct sunlight for the reflective
display, it already works extremly well at normal room lighting.

You just turn the backlight off and it then switches automatically
to greyscale at increased resolution.

This would be way cool to have as a phone/PDA display. :)
