4:3 and not 16:9?!?
4:3 is good for reading. Especially A4.

non-sense! Reading is a sequence of lines and 16:9 allows for more lines in the bottom.

I guess you'd hate old time scrolls...

Most books and newspapers may just be a sequence of lines, but magazines, comics, children's books, and textbooks generally have a fixed layout.

The Verge (via CNET) has some more interesting news about the new Kindle Fire. Apparently there will be two 7 inch models released next week, but no 10 inch model.

Pricing will probably be $199 for the less featured 8GB and $249 for the 16GB with all the goodies.

I don't know, I'm thinking that Amazon is going to try and hit the $150 mark with the lower end one.

Will there be a 16 GB model?

I have a 32 GB iPad and that seems sufficient. 16 seems small, and 8 hardly worth it.

I'd only buy it if it has advantages in reading eBooks. That is almost my sole use of my present Kindle Fire with occasionally opening Androird Bibles.

I don't need Skype, a microphone or a tablet computer. My desktop does all of them better on a much bigger screen.

Amazon wants you in their cloud. The best way is to limit onboard storage.

Now shut up and don't cry. Tear Drops don't count. ONLY CLOUD RAINDROPS of streaming RAIN (DATA that is) COUNT.

By the way you might need a very long Cat5 cable if you want to wander off.

naw, just drop a trail of wifi repeaters every few hundred feet. You know kind of like Hansel & Gretel did.

I'm guessing the difference is two-fold: (1) 3G data plan capable/required and (2) 8 vs 16 GB storage options. Possibly they will offer a front-facing camera on one only, but I doubt that. I think they'll probably price out around $179 and $249.
