new kindle touch user interface?
It has been reported that amazon CS said that the new touch firmware will have landscape support and a "new interface": http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=174904
Of course, you can always use MfgTool and fastboot to downgrade a new kindle to a previous "open" firmware version.
I am anxious to get a copy of the new firmware from one of the new multi-language kindles to compare against the current 5.0.4 firmware. This sounds like a MAJOR firmware update.
We might even need to use a new jailbreak method to add hacks to the new firmware. This could be interesting...

No multilingual X-Ray and TTS support at this time (english only). See here.
In any case definitely a MAJOR update. BTW, as far as I could see in the various screenshots in amazon.it/.fr/.es/.de/co.uk, it does not look like the interface is going to change that much (IMHO it will be pretty much the same).
Notice that black square on the top-right (maybe change orientation?).
One more screenshot fron amazon.de:
Some more snapshots here (font size dialog, dictionary, store, on-screen keyboard -pictures at right).
Here is the user guide from amazon.co.uk. It's the same as the italian one.
