Everythink is in the tittle:
An e-ink screen, that can be an amazing feature :)
especially for battery use
Yes, but there are controllers for e-ink screen who work at 8 frames per second, Like the Freescale i.MX508 ARM Cortex-A8 controller.
For exemple, look at the Pebble smartWatch, the designers have used a e-ink screen and there are not refresh time at all.
the controler may work for 8 frames per sec., but even the best controller can't change physical rules ... and the b/w micro-balls need time to turn inside their fluid ... there are surely technical tricks existing, to speed this up, but such technology has its price ...
And not to forget, we don't talk about small smartwatch displays, we talk about 2,4', 2,8', ... sized displays ...
Lets say, with the right monetary investment, nearly everything is doable. But I have my seriouse doubts, that users will pay for this all ... at least not today ...
But ... never say never ... e-ink technology is surely something to keep in mind ... and we all don't know where technology will jump to in the future ...
You have at least one customer for that: me
