Kingrow K1 is an e-ink phone concept. It stands out from all minimalist phones with e-ink – it’s smarter by a few Web affordances (it’s not much, though…). Good idea, I might even back it. But I have some caveats: 1. interface is really ugly and limited in a bad sense (they use IE logo for a web browser, come on!), 2. it’s smaller than Kindle yet allows online distractions. Might not sell.
