(and BTW, even at a minimum it shines on the walls about the same as my smartphone does)
that said, I have no use for its light aside from the dark before sleep... this state-of-the-art eink screen and the bold fonts are enough for quality reading under even a bare lamp... (though I noticed it only really turns off the light completely during screen lock)
so, it's a nice plus, but not really needed. In any case, now I'll only buy another eink device when color eink is here for real. though I wonder how illustrated magazines and comic books shall cope with a small screen and font resize...
