Iím not worried about the poor resolution... I donít need waterproofing and inverted text as I have my Oasis for that.
That's an awesome out of pocket price.

I plan on nabbing one to play with when it goes on sale. I'm more than fine waiting 'til Prime Day. Now that it has built-in lighting, I expect this to be Amazon's best selling model (at least when the price difference is actually $30-40 instead of the $10-15 right now due to PW4 discounts).

The title is clear. Itís referring to the Kindle (10th Generation). The PW4 is the Kindle Paperwhite (10th Generation).

I think youíre the only one who kept insisting the thread was about the Paperwhite.

No! You wrote that the basic is not 10th generation. That is not correct.

I did not dispute that the PW4 is 10th generation.

Lol, I thought that was already the consensus on MR? For the Paperwhites, folks here always just refer to them as PW, PW2, PW3 and PW4. For Oasis, itís either KOA and KOA2, or Oasis and Oasis 2.

Iím still confused what code naming are assigned to basic Kindles. The last I saw on the Kindle Serial Numbers wiki is KT3 and I have no idea if thatís the same as Amazonís Kindle (8th gen) or if itís something even earlier.

Yes, KT3 is Kindle (8th gen), so we would assign KT4 to the Kindle (10th gen).

Maybe in the Developer's Corner, but not MR at large.

‘Kindle’ always requires some qualifying terms applied to it. I prefer to use what Amazon uses on their support pages, e.g.:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custo...deId=201263790

I think the ‘generation’ naming is somewhat post hoc but they have been pretty consistent about it for awhile. Yes it is more letters to type but generation number tells a little more, such as when it was released (roughly number of years since first gen) as well as what software is running on it (current update supports 6th generation or later).

Iím afraid mere allegations are not sufficient evidence for me to change my worldview in matters as serious as this one is.

I did a quick check of Japan site, they definitely include generation number in the current Paperwhite listing.

I just quadrupled my outlay by buying the blue official cover.
