I found this image that shows a rough approximation of what the 1280*800 LCD looks like inside the devkit. Note the text at the top of the image: "this is how far from the screen you should be"

Yep, that looks about right. Not nearly that dark though (maybe the person who made it didn't have their contrast turned up).
Were you viewing the image at 100%? (you can only see part of the image at 100%) Image scaling in browsers (or most any program) don't use gamma corrected values when scaling down, so they darken images like that. But even at 100%, you are losing more than 3/4 of the brightness by simulating each subpixel and the spaces between them.
