Happy with 650 and question regarding "touch" screen sensitivity to dust
first of all "I AM VERY HAPPY". I got my 650 yesterday (Sony-Shop). It is really a beautiful and snappy / fast and ergonomically well thought-out device. I still have my (heavily modded) 505 but I think this will go straight to my mother/father.
But now one question for ppl with more experience concerning the new "touch" screen (IR-matrix-sensor-screen):
How sensitive is the bezel/IR-sensor to "normal" dust, hairs (have 2 cats), crumbs and the like? I am used to use my Reader like a paper book: In the bed, while having sunday breakfast etc., so chances are that "items" land on the Reader and eventually also under the bezel.
Can this disturb the touch-sensitivity? I the bezel easily cleanabke? Are the sensors sealed somehow?

I keep my PRS 650 screen clean with a small microfiber cloth similar to the one provided with the reader. (That is just one reason I want to design my own cover with a pocket, I want a place to keep a cloth, notes or receipts, but that's another show.) As far as sensitivity...Yesterday I was outside reading during lunch. A fly happened to land on the screen and I watched as the pages turned forward then back, individual words were highlighted, the little error circle lit up a few times. I would say that the IR sensors are pretty sensitive and may loose some specificity if detrius is allowed to accumulate.
By the way, I lost my appetite and went inside and cleaned my screen with something other than my little microfiber cloth.
