New Kindle user with a question

Hi there,

I just received my Kindle 3 and I'm quite impressed by it.
However, there's one thing I noticed directly: Sometimes, especially after having displayed some sort of graphics, parts of the previous page are still visible on the current page if you look very closely. Is that normal or's something wrong with my device?

Thanks in advance!

It's normal. "Ghosting" (as it's called) is something that's inherent in eInk displays.

And to get rid of it just press alt + g and the screen will do full refresh of the page you're on and the ghosting should disappear.

You will notice the menu does that as it does not fully refresh to show a quick view of the menu.
