I'll have to wait until I can see one in my hands.
I have one of the new screens and to me it looks ok. Yes it is a little darker but in even indirect sunlight I don't really notice it when reading on the device. The pictures make it look worse than I believe it is. I think the lower cost and the capacitive touch screen will make it a viable alternative. Hopefully it will help drive down the prices of the PVI screens a bit. Competition is good.
