$200 upgrade for 4g is crazy.  especially, since apple charges $130ish for 3g over standard model.  I really like my kindle fire, i'll probably get the fire HD.

That just looks like a Kindle Touch with a back-light and no home button

The Good:
Improved Screen
Faster Page Turns
Built in Front-lit Light (reason enough to get it on its own)
Double the battery life of Kindle Touch. <--- 2nd best reason.

The Bad:
Smaller internal memory: 2GB total (1.25 usable)
No audio support (mp3/audiobook/text to speech)
No buttons...at all with the exception of the lock screen (no idea what that does really)

I can't believe I just got a fire a couple of months ago!  I wish they would offer an upgrade option to us! ;) I want the paperwhite and the HD.  I know greedy, lol!  :) Well Christmas and my b-day are in December! :)

I ordered a Paperwhite! I already have the Kindle Touch. I called Amazon and talked to their customer service to find out if the Paperwhite can use the same clam shell covers as the Kindle Touch.

The Kindle Touch measurements are :
6.8" x 4.7" x 0.40" (172 mm x 120 mm x 10.1 mm)

and the Kindle Paperwhite measurments are:
6.7" x 4.6" x 0.36" (169 mm x 117 mm x 9.1 mm)

Just off a tad..but Amazon said the clam shell covers wouldn't fit.  I have a leather cover with the elastic corners and I'm pretty sure the Paperwhite will fit just fine, but we'll see  :)

I keep using the same case I've had since Kindle 1 so I'm sure you're right.

I was watching the cnet coverage of the closed Amazon announcement yesterday and then I refreshed my Amazon page till I saw the white letter on there homepage :57: Once it was availible I pre-ordered both the wifi and the 3g, so now I have to decide witch I want. Iv'e always gotten the 3g and I love having it but now I'm starting to think is the $60.00 dollars worth it for 3g when I will only have it for a year(I always buy the newest version when they are announced). Though there's still that little voice in my head saying yeah B.E. but what happens if your out and you cant get that book you'll freak out that's what you'll do. So now I have no clue which order I'll cancel. Drypen and everyone else what are you all  getting?
*sorry for the rant*

Lol. See I never go anywhere & don't need color I just wanted the reading light so I went with the Paperwhite. I have network at home & cabin so don't need 3G. I'm easy I guess lol. The touchscreen is a bonus for me.

I'm not considering the fire because I already have one that I don't use much and I have the Macbook air. I usually have a few books that I'm considering loaded before I go anywher(and I don't leave without my kindle) but there have been times where I have bought books with my 3g, beacuse I have 4 kids I'm always waiting for someone somewhere :banghead:

Whoohoo! I just ordered mine too. When the Kindle first came out if was almost perfect in what I was looking for in a ereader, but I most definitely needed to be able to read in the dark so it was a no go for me at the time. Now it seems the paper white is exactly perfect for me!  :love: Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE my iPad, but the kindle will be more 'portable' for me, lol! Did you spend the extra $20 to get it 'without special offers'? I wasn't even sure how the whole ad thingy works & didn't want ad's popping up all the time so I decided the extra $20 would be worth it  for me  8) Whew, I think this is the longest message I've ever written but I just couldn't help myself. I'm so fricken excited!!!  :dance:

Nope. My friend got it with ads and instead of a screen saver of whatever you get ads. I can live with that lol.

I'm just excited that I don't have to use the flashlight app on my phone anymore!!  :D :D
