Kindle experiencing same screen problems

Be interesting if the Kindle starts to get publicity for the same woes some Sony readers had had with fragile screens. I wonder if Amazon's "no problem" replacement policy will affect Sony's "too bad for you" policy

Since the Kindle uses the same screen as the Sony and the Gen3, naturally it's going to suffer from exactly the same issues.

The point is whether or not it will help Sony decide to update their replacement policy to be a bit more user-friendly.

Not necessarily, if the Kindle's thicker case makes it more resistant to twisting or other stresses on the screen. The Reader's thin design (which I like) does make the screen more susceptible to impact and other forces that can break it.

I don't think you can judge stength by thickness alone. The materials are different and the Sony may be more or less rigid (and transmit more vibration or shock forces).
