If someone wants to send me a Gen3, I'll be happy to compare the two screens.
It's not strictly the hardware that's important in this case. A good dithering algorithm for example might be as important.
I have a PRS-500, a friend owns a PRS-505. I'll compare the 3 of them for manga reading as soon as I have a Cybook v3.
Anyone got a simple manga page for this ? For the test we would need: LRF with and without pre-processing, and the image file itself for the Cybook v3. Could be interesting for example to see how small fonts are displayed on each of those 3 devices...
