Anyone Seen Screenshots of PW Settings Screens

I've been looking around to see if any of the "hands-on" looks at the PW bothered to peek into the settings menu. So far, I've had no luck. Has anyone else seen this?

Seriously - it would have been the first thing I would have looked at, if I got to do a hands-on, but no one did! I'm also keeping an eye out for the user guide, which would answer a lot of questions, but no dice yet.

They always drag their feet on posting the User Guide. It isn't like it is top secret anymore!

As for the hands on, those are mostly done by non-Kindle people who wouldn't know a Settings Menu if it crawled up their backside and called them Momma!

Almost all the reviews I've seen so far of this generation of readers have really just been discussions of the specs--I've seen few that suggested they actually touched a real device.

There were a few that were shot during the hands on, but I think they were highly limited on the time they could have with the new Kindle, and most of those people aren't really Kindle knowledgeable.

The K5 with 5.1.2 firmware contains support for the PW (including the higher screen resolution), so it will probably have the same settings menu. Some of the advertised PW features can be activated on the K5 just by editing some configuration settings.

EDIT: Here is one example (Reading Timer):

Glad to see I'm not the only one itching to have a look at the Settings menu (Well, technically, the Device Info popup, but, still ^^).
