Raises hand. I just really like eReaders.

A screenshot would be the best way to get an exact pixel count.

I've seen one report on Reddit claiming 1246 x 1648 as the resolution of a screen shot. Using that and 300 DPI, I came up with a display diagonal of 6.887".

That would be the first kindle since the DX to not have an exact 3:4 aspect ratio.

I noticed that too! The speed of the new Paperwhite is very impressive.

There was a review that posted the pixel sizes. They are a little different than Oasis IIRC.

That makes sense since 6.8" is a little different from 7". I'm not going to hunt down an unreferenced review, but amazon hase always used screen sizes and resolutions that allow the specs to be precise and accurate once they went to 300 dpi, so I'll just do the calculations and predict 1224 x 1632. But 1246 x 1648 isn't out of the running. I couldn't find any kobo models with 6.8" screens and 300 dpi, so no clues there.

Doesn't 1246 seem a little odd, not divisible by 4 or 8?

For what it's worth, by using the mark 1 eyeball, the Kobo Sage has a noticeably better screen (contrast and sharpness) than an Oasis 3. This is comparing one of each so given the variation in eInk's screens, I'm not going to generalize to saying that all Sages have better screens.
No they don't. My Sage is awful. It's a yellow screen and its going back.

Yes, particulatrly for amazon. The DX(G) uses 824 x 1200, but other 9.7" readers used 825 x 1200, so e-ink readers have been released with screen widths that aren't even, much less a multiple of 4 or 8. (completely odd, not just a little)

There's still too many unappealing things about the Kindle for me to buy one. But I will give them credit

A good way would be to measure the exact machine screen dimensions as a starting point. A screen shot might not be scaled properly.

Measuring the exact machine screen dimensions would be exceedingly difficullt for most people.

With the exveption of DX models, all kindles have been 3:4, and I have never heard of e-ink ereader screens whose pixels weren't square.

You sked for pixel count. There are devices in the wild and kindle screenshots are dinfinitive and are nearly trivial to make.

I don't have the device and wouldn't be able to make a measurement if I did have one.
