DX: Contrast has Been Improved

I was pleasantly surprised by the improved contrast in the DX over the Kindle-2. Text is definitely darker and easier to read on non-PDF material. On PDF material I am seeing poor contrast on some but not all downloaded PDFs. All in all a significant improvement over the Kindle-2. In fact, I would recommend the DX over the Kindle 2 to all users just based on the contrast issue. Are other DX owners satisfied with PDF contrast?

Is this a font improvement, or a screen improvement?

Pictures, please.

Others have reported this. To me the fonts look *exactly the same*. My background on the KDX is slightly lighter than the K2. I can only conclude that many people had bad K2 screens.

In the Russian forum for Hanlin clones (see MobileRead's Hanlin forum for the links), they talk about the next models, and show pictures of them. At one point they specify that the screen will be Vizplex generation 5, compared to generation 3 in the current Hanlin V3.
That is what I understood thanks to Google's translations.
