I was typing my response while you were typing yours, Alex. Yes, I guess the autumn is usually the time for upgrades, but I think anything major would require a hardware update - i.e. a new model (like the larger Kindle Fire that I think I heard about). The competition is heating up in the tablet wars, so I fear for the Nook's long-term viability, although the b&w e-readers seem safer.
