Is the poor e-ink down to the device itself, or the firmware? What I do love is the light, and I'm happy with how quick the page turns are.
I'm debating on whether to get a replacement, or simply get a refund and go back to my Kindle Touch until the Kindle PW is released in the UK. I am wary, though, of getting a replacement and having the same issues with the font.
This has never happened on my KT or KG, except when I use the center-tap menus and close them, without triggering a full-page refresh. But I'm guessing that is not what is happening with your device. Based on reviews of both devices (and my experience with the Glo) I'd just return it for a new one rather than wait for the Paperwhite, but that's just me.
