You buy a magazine over there, you see a lot of black boxes.
I've got my new PW here in Saudi Arabia and I love it. The little shades in the lower screen do not distract my reading. It is my first kindle, and it replaced my Nook Simple Touch. Even though, the new PW does not read Arabic as the nook does (after I rooted it), the new PW is much better in resolution and it has the light. For Arabic now, I read PDF after processing them with the great k2pdfopt software.
By the way, xendula
Picture censorship is the least to worry about in Saudi Arabia.
