Digitimes just posted a joint  interview of E-ink chairman Scott Liu and Hanvon chairman Liu Yingjian (no relation). There's not much in the way of nitty gritty details, but there is this:

Q: Is there a concrete plan regarding cooperation between EIH and Hanvon for the educational market?

Liu Yingjian: The color e-book reader using EIH's EPD will be tried out by a class of 500 students in Shanghai in the semester starting in September 2011. But trial use of e-book readers in classroom has already started in Yangzhou. We are now able to meet the two basic requirements for the educational market: color display and handwriting input.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
