Some of my favorite quotes from the Amazon statement:

Kindle Paperwhite does not have audio or Text-to-Speech. This makes the device smaller and lighter than it would otherwise be. Audio and an improved Text-to-Speech engine are supported on Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD.
You want audio and TTS, no problem, just shell out another $200. (I do agree people should have read the specs, but trying to push another device just to have audio and TTS is a bit annoying.)

Quote:
Under certain lighting conditions, the illumination at the bottom of the screen from the built-in light is not perfectly even.
No sh#$!

Quote:
These variations are normal and are located primarily in the margin where text is not present.
Total sh#$!

Like I said in another post somewhere, the PW will most likely be replaced way before the traditional year time frame in which Amazon replaces Kindles. The Touch was replaced after about 9 or 10 months. I will be surprised if we don't see the 2nd generation of PW released by late spring or early summer 2013.
