    Why not buy a new K3 for $139 or $189?  You will have to wait until September to receive it, but it's the best deal.

    I would definitely wait for the K3 - if you order now you'll get it for Sep 8 and you get a superior model and the choice between wifi only or wifi+3g (the K2 doesn't have wifi) and even the more expensive option is still well under $200. You get a choice of colours too, graphite or white (the K2 is only available in white).

    Has anyone tried it?   Is it really a superior model, or is that just what we are hoping?

    You might have a better response if you posted on the Let's Talk Kindle Board here:

    Not many people read this review board.

    As for whether or not anybody has tried the K3, there are one or two that got a "sneak peek" at it, but for the most part, nobody has gotten real in depth time with it.
