Things come out so fast now I find it's better when I just pull the trigger and get what I really want instead of waiting forever for something that might not come out.
That's the eternal curse of consumer electronics... if you save your money for the next, marginally cooler gadget (or wait for the current coolest one to drop in price), there will always be something better coming up over the horizon. This goes for phones, graphics cards, tablets, and of course readers
I am, however, content to wait this one out. My prs-650 is perfectly serviceable, and as I haven't yet used a front-lit e-ink device for any appreciable amount of time, it's not a feature I would ditch my older device for. If Sony does launch a decent front-lit device, though, that will probably be enough of a selling point that I would buy one
