Amazon's doubling down on what makes the Kindle unique (and optimal for book connoisseurs): readability. At $119, it's perfectly within my budget for my mom's birthday (sshhh, don't tell her).

Will the Bookerly font be available for prev gen Paperwhite? Or are we not worthy?

@eyalyavor this is what I want to know, just got 2 in January (wife and myself) - and was wondering if anyone who has had a kindle longer can speak to if they get updates like this?

@eyalyavor as I saw in Mashable "All Kindles, however, will be getting an over-the-air software update" so it's a yes 😊, here's the link:

And to think I had almost talked myself into paying $200 for the Kindle Voyage. Amazing!

@seanoliver If I were to upgrade I may still go with the Voyage. Gave one to a friend for Christmas last year and am still pretty jealous of the design as a Paperwhite owner. The non-recessed screen and page press buttons are very nice. For how much you use it I think the $80 could be justified. Both are definitely great products though. Wish I had more excuse to update, but Kindles are just already too close to perfect to buy a new one. The 300ppi screen though could give me an excuse as reading manga/kanji on the old low-res screen doesn't really work.

God dammit. I JUST bought the previous gen Paperwhite after buying a Touch a few months earlier and loving it. UGH.
