On a less important note, I miss the old author screensavers. So far I'm not a fan of the new ones. I may have to look into a hack to change them.

Otherwise, I'm happy, and hoping manufacturers get moving on cases for this thing.
Do you recognize any of the new authors? Please tell us who they are and/or post a pic or two?

SO models have ads for screensavers and not authors.

Yes, I know. Timelysarcasm has indicated that he/she (sorry ) has the non-KSO version

I guess is because those games do not need a high refresh rate. However, I personal want to keep my eink reader for that, reading. My own personal preference, of course.

why oh why is the new Kindle's screen better ? I prefer the keyboard but number one thing for me is the quality of the screen. On the pictures it looks indeed like the KK has a layer compared to the new Kindle. If it's indeed the case, I wonder why amazon didn't communicate on that ?

There aren't any authors this time around (at least not after turning mine on and off about 20 times to see).

Here are some pics of the new ones, they're mostly inanimate objects/pictures of letters/etc.

Sorry I can't imbed them, I think I'm too new of a member (and for the record, female).

It shouldn't be better - it's the same screen. Can anyone post a side-by-side comparison screen shot?

I'm not sure @Papi. The Amazon website does have this blurb:

Quote:
Most Advanced E Ink Display
Kindle's high-contrast E Ink display delivers clear, crisp text and images.
But most of us thought/think that it refers merely to the fact that the K4 uses the Pearl eInk screen. Maybe they were being subtle in stating they improved on what the Pearl screen can do.

If they had improved on the Pearl screen, why would they not be trumpeting that from the rooftops?

This added the option to use screen refreshes after each page turn.

Thank you TS!

I like the new screen savers...the letters in particular. I can see how they might get boring after a while though.
