The problem is there is no guarantee that Amazon is going to continue making e-reader with an e-ink screen. People prefer a tablet computer with an LCD screen than a dedicated e-reader with an e-ink screen. Paperwhite might be their last e-ink device. That is bad news for me since I absolutely can't stand staring at an LCD screen for a long time without getting an eyestrain.
If Amazon no longer makes e-ink device, by the time my Paperwhite lost its battery capacity for good, I could no longer buy a new Paperwhite or other e-ink readers.
