It can go up to about 40 FPS on a K4 or newer, but 7.7 FPS is adequate for reasonably fluid animation. See the "geekmaster kindle video player" thread for details:
EDIT: A benefit to using gmplay is that it is a native mode app that works on all the kindles DX through PW, and when booted from both main and diags (important on the K4). Beware that on the DX and DXG, the framerate is limited to only 1.5 FPS.
Wow, the technique you mentioned seems to be extremely fansicnating. It goes up to 40FPS on a K4?????????????? I will definitely look into this after work.
Do we actually need to program on the kindle using the technique? Also, I noticed that the kindle always refresh everything completely opposite, say if I display a letter "A". Firstly, the area of the A goes to entirely bright, the A is then rendered to black.
