New Kindle soon?

Someone I know quite well was part of an online survey group evaluating names for a new Kindle. This will not only be a reader but will come with a stylus for note taking right on the device. One of the names being tossed around was "Passage" another was "Scribe".

No other info but sounds like we might get a new premium device this year sometime.

Both names kinda suck (they should just make it a second generation DX and call it the "All-New Kindle DX with Kindle Notes" or something...)
...but anyway, if this is true, then Amazon is finally stepping up their game and I will have a reason to truly stay with Amazon.

Wait, hold up, this isn't the first time we have heard the name Kindle Scribe... https://techland.time.com/2011/08/22...next-e-reader/

...they could have been working on this for YEARS...

I don't think it is a coincidence we just heard of the name again.

I'm coming up blank, but isn't there already a product/device that does exactly what it said in that article? A note-taking device that can sync your notes to an audio recording?

Maybe from another company, but I don't think from Amazon.

Yea, I meant from another company.

Interesting. I'm not in the market for something like this, but I think Scribe would be a good choice for its name.

Eleven years ago. I doubt they were working on it that long. Probably an idea that was abandoned and now revived.

Scribe is a bit generic for trademarking.

Scribe does suggest writing, so for the product name it's more generic than Kindle.
Fire was just stupid as a tablet name and calling it a Kindle Fire originally just caused confusion.

Though Kindle and Fire are ordinary words they aren't generic for an ereader or tablet product. Basic, Voyage and Oasis were poor.

Touch was a bad choice (used by a few brands). H2O was a bad choice. Aura, Nia, Libra, Elipsa and Sage not bad.

Adding G or HD to an updated version of a product is weak. HD is now totally meaningless. It started going off in 1935 when 405 line TV (about 377 visible) was called HD. Though on 9" screen originally. Earlier systems were essentially toys with 18 to 220 lines. The USA used 440 lines at same time as UK launched 405. After WWII the UK re-started 405, the USA had switched to 525 (480 visible) during the war. France then switched from 440 to 819 and the rest of the world apart from Japan (525) chose 625 (576 visible). Japan had a hybrid 1125 line from 1972. That's about 1080 visible lines. The 720p was chosen as it's the same bandwidth as 1080i.

Advertising is crazy.

I think Aura H2O was a good name. It's Libra H2O was was a bad mane. Just Libra would have would have been better.
