I have the earliest version of kindle touch - pre paper white. I was think of upgrading to paper white and noticed that there is an offer of £20 off which runs out tomorrow. I am alway a bit suspicious of money off deals for Tech stuff as it usually leads to a newer version coming out. Has anyone heard if one is on the way?

if there is to be one, it will likely be offered in the Fall for Christmas sales as per usual

The existing Paperwhite is exceptionally good, in my opinion, and any "improvements" in a newer model may be, for me, quite marginal. If the new version (assuming there is one) has the ability to play Audible Audio Books then I'd certainly consider it but there's no additional feature I would want.

Well there are rumours, and the ones I've heard tell of a higher resolution screen and improved fonts (I think they're all fine as they are), an ambient light sensor so you don't have to change the light level yourself (again, this doesn't bother me as I keep mine set at about 6 which is fine in all lights), but the one that excites me is that the physical buttons may be coming back for turning pages. As much as I like my Paperwhite I still prefer having buttons for turning the page, as I find that I often accidentally turn the page especially when reading in bed, which didn't used to happen on my old Kindle.

and all those rumors stem from one rumor back at the start of the year which said that it would be released in April (a device was released around April - the Fire TV)

As I said - they're rumours.

I'm sure they will release something in September. I'd quite like a higher resolution screen and better fonts, maybe higher storage but I don't actually need a new one. But need and want are not the same thing.

I'd like them to team up with Sandisk or someone and bring an an MP3 type thing that does the Talk To Me feature. I'd buy one for each ear and each room. Oh look, some flying bacon :(

Yes, this was it IIRC. http://techcrunch.com/2014/06/17/amazons-top-secret-gadget-lab-is-building-plenty-but-a-thinner-kindle-could-be-the-coolest/

And this one report generated dozens of copy cats at the time. The report is quite detailed but the suggested time scale is now well off.
