Man, I wonder if I should call customer service about my K2? The contrast is really bugging me. I increased the font size, but it's still only really comfortable to read in full sunlight. Which is odd, because normally reading paper items in full sunlight hurts my eyes.
I thought maybe it was a product of the Kindle being so white, that it made the e-paper look greyer.
I was thinking about this the other day -- I thoroughly love my Kindle after only a week of using it ... but the one thing that would get me to give it up for something else would be substantially better contrast.
As far as bold. They shouldn't use a darker color for bold, they should increase the font weight. Geez.
