This is something that has me a little confused. Why is a front lit Kindle so important? Are people right now getting a case of "time for a new Kindle to come out with the same features as the nook?" syndrome, or people wanting a new gadget?

Specifically where I am coming from is this; you buy a Kindle, then what? You buy a cover. With the external power points and Kindle lighted cover I feel the demand for a front lit Kindle is more artificial than being made out. If/when a front lit Kindle comes out what will people then buy? A cover.

I can see the need for other ereaders. You buy, then buy a cover and "oh now I need a detachable light that requires batteries". What will be will be and it will come when it comes.
