What does Grey Level(Scale) mean
I'm just bought Nook, which on the wiki says it has 16bit grey levels.
I put some image pdf into it, and found that the images have very obvious boards between the colours.
Which looks like this image:
If the Grey level for ebook device is the same definition as the wiki
16bit should be enough for a picture, or 16 level means 4bit (16 levels of grey)?

it just says 16 levels of grey, not 16 bit. 16 levels of grey are enough to display pictures if properly dithered.

It is actually 16 levels of Gray (4 bit).
Text is displayed using 4 levels of gray.
Menu items & icons using 8 levels of gray.
Images are displayed using 16 levels of gray.
I have posted an image here...

I did a blog article on this when the Kindle first went to the 16 levels of gray and what that meant vs 4 and 8 levels as far as potential.
It's at http://bit.ly/4vs16grays
