It's very small but against a dark background, or when it happens to be over a letter, it suddenly shows up in its distracting presence. Upon closer inspection, while displaying a dark page in complete darkness, I found that there are two other specks of light too, but which are less bright.
It sounds like a spec of dust got under the screen. My Sony PRS-700 got a couple of dust spots underneath the screen and created tiny glow spots as well. I got over it and stopped noticing it, however... my Sony was a few years old, not brand new out of the box. That would annoy me if I had noticed it when it was brand new.
