Amazon Accidentally Leaks New Kindle Paperwhite and Sept. 30 Ship Date

Amazon has reportedly leaked details about the second generation Kindle Paperwhite, which is apparently set to ship at the end of this month, on September 30th. According a post on Forum.HR, Amazon posted a landing page (since taken down) of the new Kindle Paperwhite. Oopsies.

Introduced last year, Kindle Paperwhite was a revolution in ereaders, and from what we can tell so far, the second-generation version will be, well, a not-so-exciting, second-generation product. The new Paperwhite will feature a 25-percent faster processor, an enhanced, high-contrast display, and new interactive features like a vocabulary builder. While we still don't have full details, it appears the top Kindle will still lack physical back-and-forth buttons, which will disappoint some people. Of course, even though this leak looks to come from Amazon, you can't ever be 100-percent sure what we'll see until the Bezos-man trots the ereader out himself. [Forum.HR and Engadget]
