My new K4B is actually better than my K3 I use to brag about.
It has a nice creme background with black text.
It's not a font thing either. I am using the same custom font on both K4s and the K3 the difference is amazing!
I am not saying your new one isn't great. I am saying it's not a new type of screen or anything in my view. I bet they just sorted the quality control a bit or you got one of the really good ones. I have seen a ton of really bad K4s and Touch models too..but have seen some superb ones. During that release there was a huge variation. E ink screens vary from creamy to grey to green and contrast varies a lot too between samples. The screen in your new one is still a Pearl screen...no new technology has been used.
