That's interesting, I guess they may replace\ update anything in the Kindle e ink line up. Except for the latest Oasis 2. Many were surprised when they changed from the Oasis 1 to the larger Oasis 2. I guess anything can happen at this point.

I see glaring mistakes on that blog. It claims the basic Kindle has been removed from Amazon comparison tables and the banner at the top of the pages. I still see it on the banner and the tables.

It helps in a long thread if you quote the post you're talking about. I have no idea which link you mean.

She's referencing the 'Placeholder - do not sell' Item I believe.

I was going to comment on this earlier - that kindle is very boxy, and a very different case from the paper white that actually got built - that looks like it was a manufacturing testing device they took a picture of.

Thanks. Well yes, one would expect a "placeholder - do not sell" page at amazon to contain details of an old product, just in there as a placeholder.

The resolution is fine for reading with my PW3. I have absolutely no interest in colored lights. I'm not a delicate flower that wilts in bright light. I'd like lights like the Voyage has, a flush face on the Paperwhite, a USB C with fast charging to replace the old USB micro. If sound were added that would be fine but I read; On the very rare occasions I want to listen to a book when I'm in my 20-year old car I use my cell phone. Lastly, I'd like a power button on the back instead of hidden on the bottom.

Oh, and a case with no gimmicks and that protects the device rather than "personalizing" it.
