People who really need low power consumption (e.g. the OLPC people say that their target is 2W for computer+display combined) might consider looking for or waiting for non-x86 systems. The Beagle Board claims to draw up to 2W and to offer very roughly the same CPU speed. Nokia Internet Tablets typically use less than 2W [ref] including wireless and I believe including their display (though have slower CPUs). I'm not saying that either of these are direct competitors to the E2, but they do suggest that one can get better than 8W if power consumption is very important and one is prepared to work on it and/or wait a while. (And if Aleutia are reading this, something you might look into.)
