Uh oh... Amazon better makes some substantial improvements. Just upping the screen resolution to match the Aura's DPI, and some tweaks such as adding fonts and GoodReads are not going to do for current Paperwhite owners, or so it seems.
If the Paperwhite hadn't had a front-light, I would've probably jumped to the Kobo Glo. A built-in lighting feature was the one thing I was missing from the Touch. With regard to a home button, TTS, Audio, social stuff... I don't really care. All I want is an option to sideload books and set fonts/margins etc.
