interesting. thanks.

I guess these pictures mean e-ink technology can still improve a lot. I await the day when Kindle X looks EXACTLY like a real book.

Cool! It would be neat if you could find a K2 to look at, too. So we see the amount of change.

Gizmodo did a comparison of the iPad and Kindle 2 a little while ago.

gizmodo didn't do a comparison, they just stole it from some guy's blog. here's the proper link: http://www.bit-101.com/blog/?p=2722

and wow, the K3 looks a lot blacker than the K2.
