2. The screen is noticeably better - more contrast and whiter (less grey?) background. The fonts seem a little bit cleaner and blacker but it may just be the improved contrast with the lighter background.
3. The page turns are slightly faster and cleaner - I'd say the 15% improvement feels about right if that's the case.
I've owned every Kindle since day one. My favorite is the K4NT and with the improvements made in the new $69 Kindle, this is the best yet.
What is the version of the firmware running on the new K4?
