Looks like the PW3 is not EOL. Well done Amazon. It's about time.

As far as Amazon is concerned, the Kindle's function is to sell ebooks and subscriptions.

Well Amazon did just announce their new health tracking system today:

Introducing Amazon Halo and Amazon Halo Band—A New Service that Helps Customers Improve Their Health and Wellness

("Tone feature uses machine learning to help customers get a more complete view of their health and wellness by understanding how they sound to others," Nothing at all creepy about that )

Hmm...well, if you're implying that the Kindle software is a bit of a mess because of the number of recent firmware upgrades, what does that say about Kobo?

It's a mess because of the mess Amazon made with the PW3.
