Screens under a microscope update

Last August, Keith Peters took a look at the Kindle and iPad screens under a microscope.  I’m only getting to it now, but a month later when the Kindle 3 came out he gave it the same treatment:

“Pretty easy to see that the K3 is darker and crisper. But to the naked eye, I feel the effect is even more stunning. The screensaver photos themselves are rendered beautifully. I’d still like some new ones, but even as bored as I am with the, the first few times I saw them, I had to stare a while.”

My friend Ryan loves his Kindle, but he found a drawback on a recent plane flight:

“sir please turn off your book for take off.” Never thought I’d hear that. The only downside of a Kindle.
