New Kindle Commercial Features K3
« on: July 30, 2010, 10:41:17 pm »
I just saw that commercial with the couple reading at the beach--the same one that's been out for a little while now. Only today, they are holding graphite K3s instead of K2s. The screen contrast looks so good; the white is so white is almost looks backlit.

    I saw that last night. I wonder if they shot a K3 version earlier or digitally inserted the K3s?

    If it's anything like the videos on the website I think there's been a bit of digital jiggery pokery going on. In the video when there's a close up of the screen that the woman on the beach is using, she presses the Aa buton and it's the same as on the K2 - the new typeface option that the pics in the new manual show isn't there - the screen shot is of a K2 even if the bezel is a K3.

    Bright sunlight makes the screen of the K2 look extremely white.  It continues to amaze me how pleasant it is to read my Kindle in the sunshine, compared to trying to view anything on a backlit screen (including my camera display).

    I'm sure it's done digitally. Everything else in the commercial is exactly the same.

    I'll have to look up the next time I hear the song.. I usually just hum along but don't look,  so if the commercial has run WITH graphite Ks, I haven't seen it yet.

    I've never once seen a Kindle commercial in the UK. Perhaps I walk around with my eyes shut, but you'd think now that they're selling the K3 on the UK site as well as on the .com site, they'd be trying to raise it's profile. I know there are other UK owners, but I've never seen another Kindle here other than my own and I've never met anyone who knew what mine was - hardly conducive to getting a lot of sales, is it?

    There were no adds here either when it first came out in November of 2007. . . .I don't think the first ads came until maybe last spring, 2009 -- shortly after the K2 was released; maybe not even until the summer.  And I don't think I've ever seen anything like a billboard ad, though there is the odd print ad -- Atlantic Monthly comes to mind -- and it's showing up more and more often lately on TV. . . . .

    At least it IS a K3, and not digitally remixed.. If you stop it @ 5 & 6 seconds, you can get a decent look at the controls. the new side buttins are there with just arrows,  & the new 5-way controller is there, not the little toggle on my K2.
