New Kindle page refresh

A little bit of information for anyone that might have bought the new Kindle (Talking about the $79-$109 one. Don't know if this will apply to the Touch or not):

Like the Nook it refreshes the screen every 6 page turns. Doing that eliminates the black flash you get with a page turn (Except for every 6th one). But some people say they can see ghosting because of it, a slight afterimage of the previous page behind the current one. If you don't like it Amazon has a solution.

This update works differently than others in that you have to download it to your PC and then transfer it to your Kindle via USB. It adds a new option in your settings that allows you to instruct your Kindle to refresh with every page turn like the older models did.

Thanks for the info. This option is now standard with the software update that came out for the kindle a month or two ago.

I still haven't decided on my Kindle Touch whether to have it on or not....I left it off and I don't really notice the minimal amount of ghosting it leaves behind.

EDIT: Can't seem to delete my post but I notice the link you posted is to the software update I was referring to....so my post becomes rather useless
