They do have a bundle for the PWSE, dock, fabric cover, no ads for $230, so $20 less than above. Similar bundles with the leather or cork covers are $10-$20 more. The bundle is eligible for the 20% off trade-in too, so might save even more that way if the trade-in 20% doesn't cover the accessories when purchased separately.
Available just in time for Christmas.

That's the earliest you can get the stand either way. Guess people will need to decide if saving $20 worth waiting about a month for the Kindle itself.

Yep. I was thinking along those lines myself. I have an H2O1, look to the left, but for that outlay and those specs, I’d have to decide whether I’d prefer a Libra or a Paperwhite 5.

As things stand now, I have a Glo that’s a book repository given its micro SD card slot; however, there are signs it might not last much longer. In that case, it would make sense to pop the SD card into the H2O and make that the repository and buy a Libra to take over for the H2O. OTOH, the advantage of the Paperwhite 5 would be direct access to my Kindle library on eink, which would be handy.

Well, the bottom line is that I’m obviously sufficiently deviced and I can wait on developments. Mostly it’s just fun to think about.
Given that my H2O is still working and the battery still lasting long enough between charges, I'm waiting to see what Kobo eventually comes out with for a Forma replacement.

If Amazon is going to keep a 6" screen Kindle, bring back the PW3 and dump the PW4.

it's seems nonsensical to me that Amazon wouldn't want to have a 6" Kindle with the warmlight. although common and sense aren't two words that always go together. i won't be surprised if they drop the PW4 completely and just keep the basic Kindle. i doubt they'll upgrade the basic kindle with the warmlight. my own interest is i'd like a 6" Kindle with the warmlight that had 32GB of storage.

To me, 32GB seems a bit excessive for a 6" screen Reader. The Kindle Basic is not worth adding an orange LED to. It's obsolete. Bring back the PW3 and add the warm light to that and drop the basic and PW4.

A warm light doesn't help the 167 dpi Basic Screen.
The 32 GB isn't excessive for Chinese and Japanese or Manga. I agree that 8 G is likely 6,000+ regular novels which would take nearly 40 years to read at about one every 2 days. But it will be 32 GiB total including OS and because it's almost as cheap as 8 now.

Wowzer! I ordered a Signature on the first day it was listed and was given an estimated delivery date of Nov. 11 -19. Today I got an email updating the delivery date to Oct. 19! Fantastic!

Around here, Audible says that using an eInk Kindle for audio books is not yet supported but they are studying the issue. At which point, I asked the tech why Audible in the USA supports Kindle eInk devices if they haven't finished their testing? I was then told that they are two separate companies and the policies of Audible USA have no effect on those of Audible Canada. I dropped the phone while LMAO.

Audible is owned and controlled by Amazon, though most here would know that.

@DNSB, crazy mismanagement.
