Looks like the separate battery cover's been ditched. That's good.

Its $250 (or $280 for the 32GB) without a case, so what happens with the battery as 3/4 of it was in the case? Is this really the way Amazon see ereaders going?

There's no mention of a battery in the case, so it looks as if they've ditched that.

they are still advertising the "weeks" of battery life. The device is clearly bigger, even looks a bit thicker on the handle side. So it looks like they just transferred the battery to the device.
