well I have not seen the new reader so how could I answer that ? updated style, smaller form factor ? who knows..


don't underestimate the importance of being the first to break the 100 dollar price point. the lower the price the quicker ereaders take hold..

Granted, but the operation would seem to be the same since there is no touch. The processor on my 3G is more than fine, and the style is O.K. too except for "them there" buttons to drop a little into my vernacular.

For heaven's sake man, we are talking Kindles here, not bits of Apple fluff. I mean machines with practical vibes.

Maybe the case is thinner and smaller, maybe the buttons are rubber, who the heck knows. The fact is that it appears to be a slight update of the kindle with buttons.(ie: new processor)

Some people like new asthetics. Maybe thats all it takes.

Honorable frahse, the bestselling Kindle has been the model sans 3G, iirc, and many people (such as myself) find even the WiFi function useless. I haven't turned it on since registration. Touchscreen is a design/navigation preference that is not universally shared, even outright disliked by many. Kudos to them if they release both, which means we can each have our cake. edit: typo

I see, pink, red, and mauve colored models, and a bright apple (the other one!) green for the environmentalists.

Also that datasheet shows the CPU to be a TI-OMAP3, not a Tegra. And it says (E-ink & LGD) next to the display. wuh. Edit: and 512 ram, contrary to the claim that the unit will share specs with the Playbook (1gig) It's anarchy all up in here.

I've been holding off ordering a new one hoping for a new eInk model from one of my best-est friends, Jeff.

I feel like a little girl right before Christmas.

Indeed, my dear Otter.

==>> Cake GOOD!! <<==

I actually thought most people liked touch screen when they didn't have a mouse, a keyboard, and a very large monitor like I am at right now, but I have never seen any kind of survey. I assume you don't have WiFi available is the answer to your other point and then ...

Whoa! Are you hooked up to your computer through a cable? Is that how you roll?

That is amazing.

I am. But only when I want to put a new book on it. The rest of the time, I find myself focusing on this crazy new activity called reading.
