I could be. I'm not entirely sure. There are little dots all over the place, even when the device is off. I only just noticed them, and I looked pretty closely when I first received the device, after I returned my last one. There is a large collection of them (~5 or 6) in the middle of the left side that are very fine. And then there is one pretty dark one in the dead center of the screen. Otherwise there are a bunch more very fine dots all over the place. Is this normal?

I don't abuse the device, have only dropped it once onto a carpet, never use cleaning solution on it. I do clean it pretty often with a microfiber cloth though, and might press hard then.

I'm going to be really embarrassed if it turns out that I returned my last kindle for a normal aspect of the eink screen.
