K 3.0 firmware for K2i?

Is there any hope that kindle 3.0 formware will be available for older 2i Kindles? Or I have to buy a new one to get all the nice features? Any rumours from Amazon?

Another question - what's so different about the generations that would keep Amazon from backporting features? The K1 is an obvious dead end, with the whole wheel to joystick UI change. Is there a large hardware difference between K2 and K3 that keeps Amazon from just delivering a universal firmware (give or take the cellular bits)?

I would love to have the improved PDF support on my KDX US wireless. Porting the Webkit browser doesn't worry me so much.
