I am anxious to get a copy of the new firmware from one of the new multi-language kindles to compare against the current 5.0.4 firmware. This sounds like a MAJOR firmware update.
Me too. There will be:
- landscape/portrait mode (don't know if automatic via the grav. sensor or manual)
- extended wi-fi (added 802.1x, but no certificates)
- multi-language interface
- KF8 support (!)
No multilingual X-Ray and TTS support at this time (english only). See here
In any case definitely a MAJOR
update. BTW, as far as I could see in the various screenshots in amazon.it/.fr/.es/.de/co.uk, it does not look like the interface is going to change that much (IMHO it will be pretty much the same).
Notice that black square on the top-right (maybe change orientation?).
One more screenshot fron amazon.de:
Some more snapshots here
(font size dialog, dictionary, store, on-screen keyboard -pictures at right).
Here is the user guide
from amazon.co.uk. It's the same as the italian one
