Interesting experiments by Keith Peters at BIT-101 using his new "toy" - a USB microscope - the Veho VMS004 DELUXE USB Powered Microscope, which can capture information at 26x and 400x, so he used this to take a closer look at screen fonts and background for the Kindle 2 and the iPad.
Above are text results at 26x. On his page, he also shows us what he saw at 400x for both and then does the same for a newspaper, a magazine, and a book. The structure of a font segment on a newspaper at 400x is very close to what you see on the Kindle.
As he says, this is not a scientific experiment - he was just curious to see what it would show. Go take a look - what he gets is pretty amazing.
Update: Paul Biba of Teleread brought out his USB microscope to look at the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, at 10x and 60x. Quite a difference between the two.
