"The glossy white accentuates the darkness of the eInk screen, making it appear "muddy" when compared to a DXG screen."
Very nice way of noting and formulating it!

"In any but the brightest lighting, ghosting is extremely visible and annoying."
I presume there is a setting in the jetbook to change page refresh rates to reduce ghosting?

"When a book contains images, photos, etc. there is apparently no capability (yet) for switching to landscape view, for for magnifying or zooming in & out of the image. "
One of the updates I'm expecting in the newer firmwares!

The kindle DX for me would have been the best if it only had an SD card reader; more format support (natively, not after converting the files), and if it got rid of it's ugly ass keyboard!

Someone got to bring a B&W e-ink reader on the market with a driver that will allow for color.
It should be very simple to paste a layer of RGB pattern foil over the e-ink screen.
With the right driver and calibration software you could convert any B&W ebook reader into a color one,using an RGBW color filter!

But that aside, I would prefer B&W only because it's cheaper;MUCH cheaper priced, while color only adds a few dollars on manufacturing and software programming.

If they only had a slick looking device like the Jetbook color in B&W for $250-300!
That'd be the Pocketbook pro or Onyx, but without the FW issues!
