Bezos announces new Kindle

Today, Jeff Bezos himself let the world know that there is a new Kindle coming:

The fun is already starting on the speculation on this one. The phrase “top of the line” hints at at a new Kindle Voyage model. There has been speculation for a while about a Voyage 2 model.

On the other hand, the lasted iteration of the Paperwhite  is the one with the generation number, not the Voyage.

I find it somewhat interesting that the announcement by Jeff Bezos (unusual in itself) comes the same day as Amazon is offering big discounts on current Kindle models. Today, if you subscribe to Amazon Prime, then you get $30 off the basic Kindle, thePaperwhite and the Kindle Voyage.

I was considering buying a new Paperwhite (today’s savings are great!) but now I am not sure. I didn’t buy a Voyage because the improvements were not enough to make me pull the trigger on a new one.

People are already making wish lists for the new models. Do you want to see better fonts, the return of text-to-speech, a bigger or better screen. Are you interested in the newest shiny thing or are you happy with what you’ve got? What’s on your Kindle wishlist?
