I like everything about the pitch for the Playdate except when they describe the screen as having no backlight and "high reflectivity". When I think reflective screen I think glare. E-ink displays are designed to be easy to view under bright light, and I've never seen them described as "reflective", although maybe they are, in the technical sense. I'm not sure.

@fluffy Oh it's not, it's an LCD. They just describe the screen as having a "reflective layer" and I wonder what that means exactly

@matt oh yeah so apparently it's using the same memory LCD tech that the original Pebble did.

@fluffy Nice! I hear the Pebble looked pretty good.
