To my eyes it looks like the same artifacts are present on the Touch screen, only less visible because the PW's bg is lighter.

It's been interesting reading the back and forth about whether it's doctored and, if it's doctored, whether that's OK or not.
It seems to me that in advertising (and brand building), you want to promise as much as you can without actually ever disappointing the consumer. I can see a company with an infomercial being less concerned with managing customer expectations after the sale, they're usually one-shot wonders, but a company like Amazon doesn't have that luxury. Amazon can't afford to simply close the sale however they need to, and to heck with the consequences after the consumer gets the item.
The "Kobo Glo" and the "Nook with Glow Light" both promise to glow. No one can dispute that these devices live up to that promise.
The Amazon Paperwhite promises to be as evenly white as paper. There does seem to be some dispute about whether this device lives up to that promise. That's a problem.
Over-promising and under-delivering is never a good idea.

Without necessarily being "doctored", the lighting when doing the shots makes all the difference. Take the picture of the woman reading in the dark on Amazon's site - people might think that the only light is from the Kindle, however if you look at it properly, you can tell there's at least one (I'd say more likely 2) other light sources there

What you're seeing in your image is normal jpeg compression artifacts. Jpeg always has trouble with high contrast sudden changes. Try compressing an animation frame, and you'll see the same effect near the black lines.
