Unnecessarily? If there is something that I don't care to see when I'm reading, I wouldn't call it hung up. I simply would choose a reader that didn't do that.

Contrast-FLASH?
Sorry, that too would be something I don't think I'd care for either. I don't mind the formatting glitches or grammar mistakes when I'm reading, but I do want a clear screen with nothing flashing at me.

That certainly sounds like good enough battery life. And the device is certainly light weight. I was impressed by that aspect of the reader. I just didn't like what I saw on the screen. I don't read in dark rooms, so I have no need of a backlight, but I guess for those who read before sleep, it would be a nice feature too.
