I hope eInk doesn't die. Hybrid LCD/eInk displays could be ideal, but even standalone a dedicated eInk device does have advantages over LCD in many reading scenarios.

It would be nice, though, to have higher DPI than current devices, and some more contrast.

While e-ink in phone sized and larger formats have uses I feel that its future lies in configurable physical interfaces and ultra lower power devices. Think about having a camera where you can change the function of buttons and have the buttons show that new function or a ring that acts as a watch.
