A new version of the Paperwhite with the same 300dpi resolution as the Voyage is due out shortly.

It's Far cheaper than the Voyage - which leaves me wondering why anyone will be paying more for the Voyage..!

Because the voyage had been out for the best part of the year-end so the new paper white is just playing catchup. I believe the voyage had a better build quality and page turn buttons, but I suspect a new version of it will come out soon so there is a bigger point of difference

That'll be nice, next time I next a Paperwhite. The bigger one was too expensive. Current one that's a generation old will be fine for years unless I break it.

Agreed. Mine was a subsidised replacement when my 'Keyboard' version had a screen failure.

It's a much nicer device to read on than the Keyboard was.

She Who Must Be Obeyed  still has a Keyboard. If that dies, I will give her my Paperwhite 2 and buy a new one (she reads hers far less than I read mine, preferring to read on her iPad).
