And a new Kindle, IF it has a front glow light (certain) and has page buttons to go with the touch screen. (less certain, but essential or I keep my Kindle Keyboard 3G.)
That sure would be tempting.

There's lots of rumors that Amazon will be announcing a phone. I presume we can safely assume it won't be called a Fire Phone
The aPhone?

"aPhone" is too close to applePhone.
gPhone might be googlePhone.

I would expect an Amazon Phone to be like

azPhone or
zPhone.

Or maybe it will not be called a phone at all, looking at, for example, how seldom I use my phone to make voice calls.

From recent Eink events, I hope that these here devices will be the new kindle line-up:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jT9PJoHIgo
at 10:55
and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b83dIs7S4Ug
at 3:10
Both have the same button layout, a led light on the top right and offer great features like backlit triton display or very responsive digitizer on a high dpi screen.
Also is it just me or does the Eink logo printed on them look suspiciously like the Kindle one?
Alternatively I wouldn't mind seeing the new Epson drivers in a Kindle, as seen in the first video at 11:55.

Either way I hope we will see these devices released very soon

Limit the front-lit versions to the touch models and keep the non-touch models just as they are. Then price at $99 and $49 respectively for the ad supported models.

Smile Bring it on, Amazon!

Imagine a Kindle Fire 2 with a sunlight-readable LCD Screen from Pixel Qi ... At a recent computer expo MLJ said that she did approach Amazon and other big players and that there were future devices she wasn't allowed to say anything about due to NDAs ... so it's theoretically possible. A guy can dream! About time for Pixel Qi Screens to get to mass market imho.

Other than that, a frontlit T2 with higher DPI resolution and maybe even colour would be great. Too bad I just got a KT in June!

... Though it does have a few dozen defect pixels since the weekend (size of a single letter, I can basically still use the device normally), so maybe if I time this right I might get them to replace it with the new one!

Though that would require same-day release in Europe. Which would be awesome, but can they pull it off and do they even want to?
