No need to preorder a K6, they've been in store for quite some time now.
Oh yes, nicely confusing...K7 it is.

Just speculating, but I assume the new Kindle Touches will come with Firmware 5.2.0 instead of yet another new major Firmware version.

Maybe if the K7 *doesn't* feature an XGA display.
Even then, they may want to reserve the 5.x numbering for any K5 updates.

The current 5.1.2 firmware already provides software support for a light and for a 1024x758, 212 dpi display.

This is why I'm assuming that there will be a 5.2.0 version which will support the new and the current models.

Don't expect the new firmware for both the Paperwhite and Fire models to support the old models. Remember, obsolesence is the best reason for new sales.

Frankly, if the new firmware supports the old models, I may be disinclined to buy the new models.

As happy as I still am with my K3, I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's announcement, as the frontlight is something I would certainly find useful in those not quite dark, yet not quite enough light situations. Although if it's a touchscreen without side page turn buttons, I'll probably give it a pass.

Of course, it might be a moot point anyway if they go the way they did with Touch and Fire last time and sell to Americans only.

Yeah the .lit is a dead file type at this point. IMHO

In Microsoft's opinion too. According to Wiki (could be right...or not), .lit was officially deceased as of the end of last month.

I am curious to find out what Amazon is doing for the Kindle upgrade. The tablet I don't care about. I already have an iPad and it's a better tablet then whatever Amazon will be bringing out.

Yes, and the Sonys are better readers than whatever Amazon can ever bring out... right? Your constant Amazon and Kindle bashing is just... getting boring.
