Colour Kindle still a way off… apparently

From Engadget, a report on Jeff Bezos’ speech at Amazon’s annual shareholder meeting. For kindle users hoping for colour to compete with the iPad (etc…) here’s the killer quote:

In addressing concerns that LCD-based tablets may seem more attractive due to their ability to showcase color images and video, he noted that developing color electronic ink remains a challenge, and while he’s seen things “in the laboratory,” the prototypes are simply “not ready for prime-timeproduction.” He also stated that these lust-worthy, mythical displays were “a long way out,” but that the Kindle would remain focused as a dedicated e-reader moving forward.
