One of the writers over on the tech boards suggests that putting a dark skin on the K2 will help with the contrast issues. He has the Kindle 9000 on his, and it appears in the pictures to increase the perception of contrast. I was thinking about the solid black skin, and I was wondering if anyone else had had the same experience. I know...I'm no fun at all. I have an Amazon case, and I'm looking at plain black, but it actually looks pretty sharp since there are white edges around the pieces. I have a feeling the busier designs would bother my eyes. If I'm on the wrong board, I apologize. Thanks!
