Kindle Trade in(new) Available?

So I recently bought kindle PW5 (10Gen, activated 9/5), this news is shocked me.

and, i heard amazon help center, they said '10/27 is releasing day'

it's almost not fair, i guess (so i bought almost 2 month, not forecasting this happen...)

yeah, someone is said 'your's fault'... it's right, but maybe i get the free of charge of new kindle PW?

Well the signs where there that a new one was coming
. Not sure if you can return it but if not you should be able to get most of your money back if you sell it on ebay and than go and purchase the new one...

Unfortunately, this frequently happens with technology purchases. If you are still able to return your PW5 (I don't think you are), I would advise to do so, and then wait to purchase the new model. Otherwise, it is very unlikely that they will allow you to upgrade to the new version free of charge. Best case scenario would be to trade-in the PW5 and get a small credit and 20% off the new model.

I read review of PW4 after it was released and bought a 2nd PW3 just before they stopped selling them. Sometimes the new product isn't better. Sometimes it's worse due to cost reduction or a fashionable feature.

I also got an H2O original with SD card slot. Later Kobos don't have the SD card slot.

My son left upgrading his KK3 too long and was only able to get the PW4, which has a slightly poorer screen, probably due to flush bezel. Obvious seeing them side by side.

The PW5 is the new model. What you you mean is the PW4.

I read "9/5" as September 5th. Now I see that was the activation date.

I'd still call CS and be super nice. You never know...

Dates should be written as May 05, 2021. Then there will not be any misunderstanding.

2021 May 09 is better, and 2021-05-09 better still since not everyone knows english names for months.

Surely we need to express this in UTC/GMT ISO format, just to avoid any misunderstanding, thus:

Only the USA in the Entire World uses mm-dd-yy or mm-dd-yyyy. Spelling the month doesn't work. What date format is expiry on a USA Credit card?

All of the rest of the world uses dd-mm-yy, or yyyy, but the ISO is yyyy-mm-dd which sorts properly and is the same ordering as every other non-decimal quantity, such as tons stones pounds ounces. Or hours minutes seconds.

Even most countries without roman-latin alphabets now use arabic-indian digits, so the ISO numeric format OR the non USA numeric format works, May doesn't work.

Though if all Gregorian dates had 10,000 added to be Holocene Era, then we would have no AD / BC issues and maybe Moslems, Chinese and Jews wouldn't feel a western version of a Christian Calendar was being foisted on them. There also the problem of English History. England was one of the last places to change from the Julian to Gregorian.
The Julian calendar, proposed by Julius Caesar, took effect in 45 BC and lasted till 1582 when Pope Gregory authorised the current system. John Dee advised Queen Elizabeth I to adopt it but her privy council thought it too Papish.
England and Sweden (and places ruled by them) were two last users of the Julian Calendar: In the British Empire (including the American colonies), Wednesday 2 September 1752 was followed by Thursday 14 September 1752. For 12 years Sweden used a modified Julian calendar and adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1753.

Use the ISO format. No confusion anywhere.

Many people, organizations, and governments still use 2 digit years, even for official forms.
Being over 100 years old is not required for this to wreak havoc with birth dates.

I doubt it. I don't know what you paid in So. Korea for the PW4 but here in the US it is going for $89 at last look. They aren't about to give you a PW5, worth $139 pre-order, just because you bought a PW4 two months ago.
