Which Kindle?

Marco Arment:

My recommendation: if you’re itching to preorder one of the new Kindles and absolutely can’t wait until the reviews are out, go with the Paperwhite Wi-Fi with ads.

Hard to argue with his logic. My two-year-old Kindle Keyboard has 3G, but I can’t remember ever needing it.

Some details that appeal to me about the Paperwhite: the higher-resolution screen and the new fonts (including Baskerville and Palatino). Update: But, bizarrely, they include Futura — a typeface I love but which does not make for a good long-form text face.
