Looks like HuffPo may have jumped the gun, as the rest of the reviews just now came online.
The 2004 Oy Modilis patent for "Light panel with improved diffraction" has diagrams that look a lot like what Amazon has shown for Paperwhite. They also had a patent for an "Ultrathin lighting element". Amazon bought the company in 2010.
Google Patent Search shows 391 patents with Amazon.com as the asignee, I'm going to go read Paperwhite reviews, so don't feel like looking through them right now...
