True, but if I shine a bright light on my Touch it looks white too. I think all this Amazon hype about a special white screen is total BS. They simply took a slightly improved eInk screen that is just as dark and brown as on any other Kindle and put a bright light in front of it. And they didn't even get the light part right. It is the best choice out there at the moment, but such is the sad state of eInk e-readers. They either need to drastically improve the eInk screens are move on the the next great technology.
