The larger screen interests me. BUT, look for close out prices on previous versions! That would be a tough call if the price were right and if the closeouts weren't so old that the batteries are suspect.

As I've stated before, Amazon seems to release stuff in the USA early to work out the bugs. We suffer so you don't have to. You're Welcome!

I think the Signature Edition sounds a bit gimmicky.

With a wireless charger, Amazon could dump the USB socket altogether. This would make a water proof device possible.

I doubt you'll notice any difference in sustained transfer speeds, although it might be nice not to have to worry about someone using a nearby microwave during a transfer. Flash storage can't keep up with even 2.5 GHz speeds.

There are still many people who want to sideload their personal stuff via USB. Or who don't have wifi at home.

The press release mentions "20% faster page turns"
Quote:
“The new Kindle Paperwhite comes with a warm light and larger display for even more comfort, 20% faster page turns, and up to 10 weeks of battery life—all in a compact, waterproof design that makes it easy to enjoy a book anywhere, day or night. Now more than ever, it’s delightful to get lost in millions of books wherever you go.”
