Don't think it's Pearl. I A/B'd it with the one and it's got a little bit more contrast.

Nice way to completely ignore a poster who tried to help you.

It is not a pearl screen. It has more shades of grey but it is not a pearl screen.

The screen itself appears unchanged, but the 16 grays definitely makes a difference for illustrations/pictures. (yes, my new reader came today version of taming)

This part I didn't understand. So I asked this:

Which is a commentary on the contrast of the new kobo vs the old kobo or an eink pearl.

NOT a repeat of my earlier, is it an eink pearl screen question.

Thanks

Thanks omro, sorry I completely misread your post and I was a bit grumpy - I'm in bed with the flu. And to answer properly, no the new wifi kobo screen does not have better contrast than the pearl screen.

Please accept my apology again, I'm going to take more pills and go back to bed.

I meant to say I A/Bd it with the OLD one -- the original -- and it looked a little bit better. Sorry! Mistake!
