If they don't fix it by the time the Kindle touch comes out I'm jumping ship.
Which problem(s) would this solve for you? What font and text size do you want to use that is not to your liking?

I may be wrong, but I don't think page refresh frequency is related to font quality (if a font looks crappy, it looks just as crappy after a full page refresh as it does 5 pages later without one). It might solve problems with ghosting or suit someone's preferences around frequency of e-ink 'flash'óneither of which I experience as problems myself.

I do find that text at smallest sizes does not look great (some fonts are better than others). If one could load custom fonts on somehow (as Kobo Touch allows), that could go a long way to addressing this. Alternatively if there were a 'saturation' adjustment that made for a higher ratio of black-to-grey pixels (like Sony), that would help.

Anyway, they ignored my feedback about wanting multi-level TOC support so I also found the update underwhelming.
