No idea how reliable apple insider is, but here's a different set of rumors than yesterday's:

Well, we'll see soon enough what Amazon has up their sleeves. I'm excited to see. One thing I like with this little rumor sheet is that there's still a non-touch Kindle being made.

That rumor being true would make my day also. Tequila for me, please.

The Tequilla with no touch, no 3G even at $99 seems a repeat of the current WiFi tablet, so what is the point?

The Whitney with 3G, IR touch sounds good. How much? I may get it and give my old 3G away.

The Hollywood, no 3G, so what?

I'm excited. I love my Sony PRS-505 but I really want an upgrade now after three years! I definitely want 3G connectivity, the "free" 3G is definitely Kindle's selling point for me. I am partial to epub but I can probably live with mobi.. I hope the design of Kindle has improved (no flames please! I know some people love how the Kindle looks.. I didn't, so far).

Plus the current WiFi model is not a tablet.

EDIT: Not to mention the fact that if this rumor is true... it means Amazon has heard and recognized the fact that many just don't want/need a touch-screen reader.

I feel like breaking into that song: "I beg your pardon"
but the rest of it doesn't really work,
so I will just ask the plain question:

What the heck are you talking about?

Just an updated style and processor. They arent going to continue to make an outdated model.

I don't see any difference between the WiFi Tequilla with no touch and the current WiFi Kindle with 30 something buttons, but I am willing to listen to an explanation.
