I'm super excited for reviews of the new Paperwhite this coming week. My upgrade plan is riding on it being as good as I hope. Much as I want an 8 inch device, I can't rationalize paying double for it and I'm skeptical we'll see the Forma heavily discounted.

I keep hoping I might find a Glowlight Plus in the future, though.

Well, I suppose we'all is remembering the same screen from actually having owned the device - or still own one. That's a big 10-4, good buddy.

Seriously, Mobileread has absolutely nothing to do with perpetuating a "Mobileread folklore talking point" about the quality of Voyage's screen. I would say many previous and present owners (that would be me), find it to have been - thus far - the best screen ever.

I look forward to the day when another device, from any company, can manufacture a better screen. I'll buy that device.

We have four kindles, two Voyages, an Oasis 2 and a PW4. Nothing beats the screen of the Voyage. In fact I’d rather lose my 3G Oasis 2 than give up a single Voyage.

I won’t buy another kindle unless they produce a screen as good as the Voyage. I’d rather use a Kobo to read my Amazon books, the software is better, more user friendly and simpler to use, plus I like the 8 inch screen.

I feel you for the Oasis 2. I got 3 of them via Amazon and decided to send them back to Amazon and skip this generation.
For some reason, the Oasis 3 has a way better screen, probably due to the better front light system.
I'm curious to check the Parperwhite on Wednesday, but I might end up returning it if it's not great and make the Sage my main reader. For the software, what Amazon offers suits me and I find it way more polished than the Kobo one.

I heard that the Oasis 3 was better too, but after spending £260 on the Oasis 2 I just won’t spend that again on a Kindle. Ironically I’ve spent far more than that on multiple Kobo’s this year, and my Forma came from Amazon, they were the seller.
