I am a bit put off with Amazon right now. Before the nook glow, they allowed a blogger to see a front lit kindle. That was months ago. I was excited, but now I could give two #%€ге.
It is a lot like the PS Vita. It took Sony months to release it after showing it off. By the time release rolled around, I had dropped my preorder. I didn't even wanna hear about it. Same with front lit Kindle. I see speculation on it and meh. I got nuttin.
