It's not a tablet. It's a black and white ereader. So how could it show a tan color?

It's lit, yes, but it's eink and is FRONTLIT. It's a completely different system. The lighting projects down toward the screen. On a backlit device like a tablet or Fire the lighting comes from behind the screen and projects outward. Also, the eink Kindle is black and white...there's no color to use.

Currently, Amazon and Best Buy are selling the Sport at full MSRP. They sell the Zip at $10 below MSRP, which makes the price for both models the same. Time will tell if this pricing model remains or if they'll apply a similar discount for the Sport.

In the meantime, the Sport is selling for the same price as the Zip. That eliminates price as a factor in deciding which model to choose.
B&H has the Sansa Clip Sports at the prices mentioned, but I did notice that they have a 16 GB model available for pre-order. The pre-order price is $82, which might or might not be a bargain.

But, if you don't need WMA and do want as much storage as possible in a convenient, reliable player, this might be of interest.

So far, the 16GB Sport isn't listed on SanDisk's website. It's gotta be overpriced. SanDisk only charges an extra $15 for the bump from 8GB to 16GB for the Fuze+. That being the case, the 16GB Sport should retail for $65, not $82.

I'd wait until Amazon and Best Buy get this size. The price will be much better.

Time purchases for Kindles are back - looks like this time for all devices:

"A New Convenient Way to Pay
Make your first payment at checkout. Pay the remaining balance in four equal monthly installments.

No interest
No finance charges
No hidden fees
No credit check or application required

How it Works
To get started, click on the button below. Add any eligible Kindle e-reader or Kindle Fire tablet to your cart. At checkout, we’ll charge 20% of the device price, plus any applicable tax and shipping charges in full. The remaining balance will be automatically billed to your credit card in four equal installments every 30 days. This offer is limited to one Kindle e-reader or Kindle Fire tablet per customer."

I don't believe Prime is required.

You must be in the US, have had an Amazon account for 2+ years, have a credit card on file that expires after June 2014 (possibly and other qualifications).

Must accept "offer" before purchase, of course.

Even with above, not every account qualifies (my 'free books' acct is old enough and has the required CC on it, but doesn't qualify, for example, but my regular acct does).

Also, offer not available in Florida and District of Columbia.

Interesting about the two accounts...guess maybe there's a spending minimum before the account qualifies?

Could be. No doubt they profile a bit, but the account that does qualify has a lot of books and several devices on it, so not aimed at those without Kindles (as some others have been).

Thank you for the heads up. Gave my mother a Paperwhite for Christmas, and thinking about buying one for myself. This gives me the a good excuse to go ahead and get another reader!

I would've love to pay only $219 for my Nexus 7. I guess there is always a virtue in being patient.
