Kindle 3 - Page refresh slows

After reading on my new Kindle 3 for about 20-30 minutes, the page refresh becomes slower.

It's only about 1 s more but the effect is quite strange. It looks like the older page remains for an extra sound.

Is there any reason why this is happening?

Thanks!

Could it be you are reading in direct sunlight or in warm conditions? I don't know if I am imagining it, but it seems to me the page turns are slower in direct sunlight. If this is what you are referring to, I do not know.

In fact, I don't even know if it is just my imagination or an actual e-ink phenomenon.

My page turns were seemed slow and used to irritate me until I applied the new 3.0.1 firmware and it's been speedy ever since. Also it could happen if your Kindle is still indexing a lot of books which you've recently put on the device - this can also result in a sluggishness.

I upgraded mine to 3.0.1 and everything was working fine. This morning, I started seeing the slower page refreshes. Before, it was really quick...just a quick flash of black and then the next page. When it slowed, there was a full second of black and then the new page. I just restarted it and the refresh is improved, but still a little slower than I recalled from last night's reading. I am not in direct sunlight and there is no indexing going on.

Maybe it's a memory leaked? Hopefully Amazon can fix it with yet another firmware update.
