My question is whether its screen is newer generation or not since they say it has higher contrast and ppi.
I have to say that it is strange if it really is newer version considering Kobo is still using the same pearl screen for their Kobos which they just announced.

I wonder that Amazon has an exclusive contract to use the new generation of e-ink?
That makes sense that because of a supply issue the Kindle Paperwhite is only available in the USA right now.
The new Kobo device is advertised as "high-res XGA E Ink Pearl". So not sure if that means same pearl screen with a higher res or if it's truly "next gen"
