Video: Android-powered E-Ink display kindles our e-book fantasies

Someday soon, we expect Google's Android OS (like Microsoft's ubiquitous WinCE platform) to power pretty much any consumer device available. Until then, we're left to peer wistfully into the misfit laboratories of the hacking community to get our open-source kicks. The cats at the MOTO Development Group have written a custom driver to create what they claim is the first instance of Android running on an E-Ink display. Unfortunately, there's plenty of that annoying white / black E-Ink flicker as the display refreshes. While that won't be eliminated anytime soon, it's certainly possible to minimize the effect through some future optimization -- this is just a first step, after all. See it in action after the break.
