Kindle 4 with Camera and Tilt Scroll

it would be great if Amazon put a camera on the back of the kindle with OCR software.

It would also allow new kinds of Art with kindle displaying odd photos of people and landscapes.

This would mean paper books which i already have could be scanned into a the kindle and then the books discarded or set on fire.

Also a tilt scroll instead of page turning buttons.the page scrolls up and the more you tilt the faster it scrolls.this has been proved already in a different device.remember.

Also a pull lever so you can tilt stand the kindle on a desk or ledge like a photo so you don't need to lay it flat.

Ability to make phone calkls using skype and 3g sim card.

voice recording and a radio as well.


Kindle 4.

Not gonna happen. Amazon wants to keep the Kindle simple, not make it so unspeakably complicated that only certified geeks can use it.

There are cases with a kickstand for those that want it -- I wouldn't want the weight.

I have to disagree with you, Vugtitan. I'm happy to use my Kindle for reading books. It's light, uses almost no power, and is extremely easy to operate. I want it kept that way.

Go ahead and buy something that starts with an "i", because Kindle will never do that.

Thinks it's gonna be a contrast update of the display, even smaller and less weight, some additional features like PDF Reflow etc.

No need for a camera or touchdisplay for me.

Sounds right, but how awesome would it be if they put Mirasol on it? I would definitely upgrade from my K3.
