vizplex display or pearl display

Question to all the 650 owners - I just got my 650 last week and I noticed that on start up, amongst the many logos that pop-up, the device was displaying the e-Ink vizplex film logo and not a pearl logo.

Does everyone see the same thing?

How can I check to make sure this is really a pearl display and not the older vizplex display?

I know companies sometimes substitute components or try to get rid of older components in this way. but a bait and switch would be unacceptable

be well,
Hoyt

As mentioned elsewhere on this forum... vizplex is eInk screen and Pearl is simply latest variant... and why does everyone always assume the worst...

See Confused: Vizplex or Pearl?

E-Ink Pearl display (Vizplex™ v220)
That entire thread is worth reading, but as elcreative says, the bottom line is that Pearl is the latest Vizplex.

I still think Sony should have called in Pearl to avoid confusion.
