Regarding the Fire -- I am correct in assuming we will be able to side load other (DRM-free .mobi) books and documents as with previous Kindle devices?

Thanks for that -- I hadn't refreshed the web page from this morning. <slithering away embarassed>

I am not so sure about replacing my 1 month old Kindle 3G. The new one is touch, right, but everything else, especially screen size, is similar. Yeah, 1 oz less, but ...

Now, trying to think with my brain and not my emotions. Because My iPad 2 does everything I need, including reading Magazines and PDFs with GoodReader. The Kindle Fire is smaller, which is actually very convenient but reduces display's area as well.

Yes, covers are available for pre-order if that is what you mean.

I agree! That's what I've been explaining on the B&N forum for over a year, but people "threw me tomatoes" every time I made the comment.

Tomorrow? what you mean with tomorrow! I thought actual delivery was for November. Or, that date only applies for Kindle Fire tablet?

*** EDIT ***

Ignore my comment, that one is shipped next day or available since now.
