PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless iRex used Linux and an electronic paper display to build a portable reading device that 'reads just like paper, and is perceived as such by the human eye'. The device can save students from having to carry around heavy stacks of text books, and might also be popular with doctors, lawyers, and technicians.

According to the article, the battery lasts a week, using it 3 hours per day. That's 21 hours battery life...... Where are you getting your figure of 5 hours?

Sure, it's not the final version, but I don't believe for a millisecond that they would manage to increase the battery life by over 400%.
