You'll pry my e-ink ereader out of my cold, dead hands. For avoiding eyestrain and great battery life it's far superior to any tablet. However I won't be replacing it until it either breaks, or when colour e-ink comes within my price range.
These devices are always going to be niche, because you have to read a lot to justify the expense. But they tend to last for ages and retain their usefulness, so I think the article's suggestion that it's the end of their era is alarmist.
