As much as this question came up when the KTouch was released you'd think at least one or two of the tech blogs that were at the press event would have checked this out during the hands on, but so far I can't find any mention and it doesn't appear there's a users manual up yet on Amazon.
I just saw a video on YouTube. It does have landscape.

It was the one by cNet. It shows the menu and the landscape option is there.

I don't think that there is an audio jack on the new Kindles. A firmware upgrade isn't going to fix the lack of audio. The only thing on the bottom is the power button and the microUSB port.

I don't care the audio .. ...was referring to landscape ...

For a subsidized phone, I'd do that. Then I'd turn the cell radio off and use it like an iPod touch.

I was in bed playing YouTube reviews on my phone. I was actually trying to annoy hubby because he didn't share my enthusiasm about the Paperwhite. So I was making him listen to the reviews hoping he see the beauty of the device when I just happen to glance and thought I saw the option Landscape Mode on a menu shot. I squealed making him jump. I backed up the video and paused it and sure enough it was there along with several other menu options I haven't seen before.

I was using Tapatalk at the time so I couldn't post the link but here's the review that shows that shot.

The menu can be seen at 1:31 on that video.

I had a delivery estimate of October 3 for my Paperwhite. It came with free 2-day shipping because I started a free Prime month trial.

This morning, I checked on the price to upgrade to 1-day shipping: only $4 so I upgraded and now have an expected delivery date of October 2! I'm so excited!!!
