Get the Nexus 7 with Moon+ and you'll have the best TTS solution.

Note the $49.99 4G plan for Fire HD LTE is just for the first year. After that, presumably it goes up to the normal $14.99/mo that AT&T charges.
This makes more sense, $50/yr was too good too be true... however I must...are you sure it's ?

During the live event I didn't hear Amazon mention this was only for the first year, if it's true this is very misleading of Amazon, and very characteristic of them.

Yes it does.

Anyway... some of the new offerings are very nice but nothing to make me want to spend money. Maybe the next generation....

Well, I followed your advice and ordered the PW to be delivered to a forwarder.

It annoys me to bits though, that bezos strategy : "since no one else (no nook, no kobo glo) is on the european market with a front-lit e-ink, we don't need to go either". That really is BS on a grand scale....

I'm having a hard time with Amazon's new marketing term paperwhite I keep on reading paperweight even when I hear it I automatically hear paperweight and think the person had a lisp.

Even my keyboard keeps on getting to correct the term with paperweight.

At least it's not paperwight. That would be terrifying.

I came so close to hitting the buy button on the PW and case, but backed off. I think I'm going to wait for the reviews this time. I have a KF, K3g, and K4NT right now to keep me company.

Besides, the new iPhone announcement is coming in 6 days.

It's like this. I use My K4 downstairs, I use My K3 upstairs and I use my Kindle Fire at night in bed when the lights are out. With the new Paperwhite I don't need the K3. I want the new K4 because of contrast issues with the one I own plus the extra fonts and storage.

So I really need two eInks and the KF will be used as a tablet finally not a eReader. I need to sell but I doubt anyone would buy my K3 or K4 though.

It's quite easy, you just keep buying them


Glad I still have my K3 as my cat put a faint scratch in the screen of my Touch last night and I'm not sure yet if it'll be noticeable while reading. My K2 and Opus get used as loaners when someone wants to borrow a book.
