New eInk Touchscreen Technology Due in August?

The iLiad supports this feature but the Kindle doesn't. I'm talking about the ability to annotate documents by writing on the screen. According to this InfoWorld article there's a new eInk read/write display technology being shown at the Display 2008 conference in Tokyo this week. It's a step up from the iLiad's display and should be available in August.

Wouldn't it be cool if Amazon would use this as an opportunity to rev the Kindle, reducing the price on the current model and the offering a more expensive unit that features this new display technology?
