Erasing G-d’s name on an ebook reader

Iyyar 21, 5769
Question
I have recently purchased a new e-book reader that uses a new technology called e-ink (electrophoretic display in technical terms) and wondered if it is permissible to erase g-d’s name from this screen.This is different from traditional computer screens as I think it is much closer to printing.
Answer
I don’t really know how the e-link works and in what way it differs from the normal screen however I can’t imagine it being a Halachic problem more than the computer screen.
