Wow, this came much faster than expected, but according to most reports Amazon.com is going to release the next version of the Kindle on Wednesday.
The larger screen size is said to target newspapers and magazines to accommodate better display of advertising and insets. In addition, the new screen will allow Amazon to enter the e-textbook market.
Instead of pre-ordering Wednesday as soon as it hits the site (assuming this is all true) I do plan to wait a little, see the new features and then decide whether to jump in. I can hardly justify 2 Kindle's within 3 months, that's a lot of money to save a few dollars a book.
